Learn Taiji for Fun and a Healthy Heart!
Not only is taiji fun, mentally stimulating and great for improving balance, but it also appears to be good for your heart. According to new research published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, Taiji may improve the health and well-being of those living with heart disease, high blood pressure or stroke.

Taijiquan: Moving for Better Balance
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.
YogaQi® ("Yoga Chi")
Wednesdays, 6:30pm, and Thursdays, 7:45am. YogaQi® is a fun, rejuvenating class that blends yoga stretching and flowing qigong exercises to bring energy to the internal organs and acupuncture channels. Learn more about this fresh new yoga style created by GateWay founder, Bill Buckley.
Taiji or Tai Chi? Qigong or Chi Kung?
You’ll notice that we generally use the less common spelling: “taiji” and “qigong,” which is now more broadly accepted within the international Taiji community.
