Tai Chi Nanaimo..Tai Chi for ALL


A 108 move health-oriented tai chi set forms the core for our programs which we practice and teach through our not-for-profit, volunteer-run organization.
Tai chi is a complete whole-body exercise that can be practiced anywhere, any time, at any age, with no need for special gear or clothing. Our accredited volunteer instructors teach beginners and continuing classes.
After completing one of our Beginner courses folks, if they haven't already done so, can pay the annual activity fee, choose to join continuing classes to improve their Tai Chi and prepare themselves for our other classes.
In other classes we also practice Lok Hup, Tai Chi Sabre, Tai Chi Sword, and Xingyi. All of these, being based on common principles, inform one another. Philippe Gagnon, one of the original students of Moy Lin-Shin, the originator of the forms which we practice, supports us with yearly workshops.

In addition to the above, we have the fortune of being one of the centres on the planet where Dr Eva Wong has chosen to conduct her Daoist Qigong multi level training through yearly workshops. For those who have begun this training, we are able to support their practice with weekly practice sessions.
