Roots & Branches Qigong™

Our Qigong is highly recommended for all levels from brand new students to experienced practitioners, these classes teach basic tai chi principles of relaxed movement, balance, and energy flow in an accessible format that does not require memorizing a long series of postures.

Our QiGong, Roots & Branches 5 Element QiGong™, is based on the Cheng Man Ch’ing Style T’ai Chi form – also known as Yang Style short form – and is unique in the world of qigong.

Testimonial for our Sunday qigong class: “This is just to thank you and Greg for such an enlightening and enjoyable class. Every Sunday I appreciate more how Greg simplifies (instead of complicating) basic tai chi principles and helps us to understand, enact and practice them. Through his class, I am learning for the first time how to actually relax and feel what’s happening, things I’ve been told to do from my first class, but have only begun to experience through Greg’s classes. Basic tai chi principles remain the same, but every week Greg puts them in a different light, revealing another facet of the diamond that is tai chi. Thanks again.” – Bill
