T’ai Chi & Qigong

Qi is an energy force thought to flow through the body; t’ai chi is said to unblock and encourage the proper flow of qi. Both develop the mind as well as the body. Qigong, which is traditionally studied alongside tai chi, means “energy exercise.” Together, these two disciplines are transforming the way people improve their health, strength, balance, concentration, and mental well-being-and they are having fun while doing it! Best of all, you can enjoy all these benefits yourself, regardless of your current level of physical fitness. Your instructor, David Foulk, is a t’ai chi master and an Advanced Level 3 Instructor of qigong.
