At our school, we focus on helping each individual create a solid foundation in the traditional basics of good Hunyuan Tai Chi and Qigong practice—but we also focus on community, friendship, fun, and on meeting the particular challenges and opportunities we face in our lives today. Classes are small, and beginners are welcome at any time.
