Find Balance and Achieve Lifelong Health with Tai Chi and Qi Gong

Tai Chi Chuan is a 1000-year-old tradition that has been passed down through generations. We teach the Yang Style Long Form.

Each of our one-hour Tai Chi classes begins with Qi Gong to cultivate and direct energy through the organs and main systems of the body.

Tai Chi students report these benefits, which have been corroborated through many scientific studies:

  • Greater relaxation and peace of mind

  • Relief from stress and anxiety

  • A clear and positive outlook on life

  • Relief from chronic pain

  • Lowering of blood pressure and blood sugar

  • Increased flexibility and balance

  • Increased focus and memory

  • Strengthening of joints and muscles

  • Speedy rehabilitation from injury and surgery

  • Continued brain development


"Tai Chi at Body Balance has been a part of my cancer journey. During recovery from surgery, I would lay in my hospital bed and breathe while imagining doing the form. This helped me relax and exercise my breath in a body forever changed. Attending Tai Chi has brought back my strength and helps to keep me strong."

— Linda Byrne, Tai Chi Student & Lotus Scholar


"I had been doing Tai Chi and Qi Gong at Body Balance for almost 2 years prior to receiving my diagnosis of Stage 3 breast cancer. I attribute my stamina throughout my treatment to having previously strengthened my body by practicing Tai Chi at least 3 days a week. I have continued to participate in classes post recovery and it has helped me return to health."

— Pat Nash, Tai Chi Student & Lotus Scholar     


"The practice of Tai Chi has made me a much more effective facilitator and leader in my work by teaching me to have greater trust in myself and the unfolding of group decision-making."
