Taijiquan:  Moving for Better Balance

Beginner Class:  Mondays & Wednesdays at 9am.  Continuing Balance:  Tuesdays & Thursdays at 10:15am   The medical benefits of taiji continue to attract media attention, and numerous studies indicate that taiji is the most effective form of exercise for improving balance. The beginners class follows the nationally acclaimed curriculum developed by Dr. Fuzhong Li and a group of researchers at the Oregon Research Institute:  Taiji Quan:  Moving for Better Balance.  Students in the continuing balance class move beyond that curriculum to learn the Yang Style Taiji Long Form – with a focus on balance and strength-building movements.  Learn more - and read what current students have to say about this fun and effective class!  Watch Bill's short explanatory video.

Taiji or Tai Chi?  Qigong or Chi Kung?
