Learning Tai Chi & QiGong

Whether you are a complete beginner or a long term practitioner, the beauty of Tai Chi is that there is always something more to learn ...

Learning Tai Chi & Qigong is a gradual process of intellectual understanding, physical practice & persistance.


To get the most out of learning Tai Chi, we need to formulate an appropriate plan of action and begin a dedicated process of learning and training. After all, you can't train without understanding what to do, and you can't get better with only intellectual understanding. To make this process easier for, we have created a series of courses and approaches to suite every learning style and goal. This strays from the very traditional process of learning in a specific sequence (which you can also do here if you would like!) but maximises your chances of making Tai Chi and Qi Gong practices a permanent fixture in your life.

After all, to get the maximum benefit from Tai Chi and Qigong training you have to actually do it!
