Taichi Qigong

Taichi Qigong is an ancient Chinese form of exercise that suits all ages and levels of fitness. Each movement is performed very slowly, allowing the practitioner plenty of time to breath and 'to get in tune'. Regular practice will help develop a supple body and stress-free mind.

Taichi Qigong consists of 18 movements that can be memorized in no time at all. It emphasises the importance of breathing, resulting in a free flow of qi or life force.

There are three 1 hour classes a week to choose from: an evening class held each Tuesday and two morning classes held on a Tuesday and Friday.  Beginners may start any time. Please contact us to enrol before attending.

Class Fees: 1 class - $12, 4 classes - $40, 10 classes $75.
Reduced fees for members of the Lotus Yoga Centre
