Although Tai Chi was originally a Martial Art it is mainly practiced today as an excellent form of exercise with many health benefits.
The words Tai Chi Chuan mean Supreme Ultimate Boxing, used as an exercise for health it would loosely translate as Supreme Ultimate Exercise or Skill.
Most have seen it's flowing and mesmerizing movements...

The Mother of all Chinese Internal systems and martial arts. The translation of which is Energy Cultivation, or Energy Work.
The Chi Gung (qigong) systems that we teach will heal, renew, and grow the intrinsic energy contained within us. It's the "stuff" that the universe is comprised of.
We learn to cleanse the body, and " Build the Chi" This may be why many people, including myself, have had miraculous recoveries. I owe my life to these practices.
Qigong/Chi Gung has traditionally been taught alongside Tai Chi and will be offered as well
Energy Cultivation Exercises have been around for over 1,000 years .
The Chinese word for air is Chi. They call the practice of these exercises
Chi Gung/Qigong (chee gung).
Qigong can be performed standing, sitting, or moving.
An popular example of moving qigong is the art of Tai Chi.
All of us need oxygen taken from the air we breathe to fuel our brains, and our bodies.
Without enough oxygen everything works less efficiently, and our health suffers.
Did you know most people use only a third or less of their total lung capacity when they breathe
and they’re missing out on a large amount of usable oxygen that can be used to
heal and maintain your body at a higher level.
Imagine what can happen if we put that into good use.
We will learn how to breathe like a baby again. Have you ever watched a baby breathe?
Their whole body breathes. Regain the vitality that is your birthright by learning how to
breathe more efficiently and completely!
Then we learn how to coordinate breathing with movement through
Qigong Exercises, they enhance strength, balance, and range of motion.

A Few Very Nice Testimonials From Former Students
"I was frustrated with my lack of progress in my Tai Chi and Qigong practice. It seemed like no matter what I did I wasn't advancing in my skills. I thought I had hit the ceiling of my Tai Chi abilities. After taking Bruce's Class the quality and true understanding of this art that I hold so dear was completely transformed! My approach to studying at home was taken to a new height.... But not just that, my performance was significantly improved."
I had pain shooting down my arms and legs...I didn't know what to do. I was desperate, and ready to try anything.
Bruce taught me one of his "standing sets" to help me release the tension in my neck, and back.
Over time gravity helped to separate the space between the discs in my spine. This helped the impingement of the nerves that was causing me so much pain.
I had been away from practice for a few years and was starting to feel stiff, and out of sorts for awhile. I took a chance and started working out at Bruce's School. My Tai Chi Form is taking on so many new dimensions, and layers of understanding. You see what's great is that Bruce just doesn't teach sequences of moves, he teaches principles that you can immediately apply to your art.
I now have more flexibility than I've ever had in my life, and I just feel stronger, more centered, and in control.
