A Chat with Northwest Tai Chi and Qigong
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Classes are led by a USA Martial Art Hall of Fame instructor who is taught by grandmasters from China. Classes are done in a relaxed environment with a traditional focus. You will learn proper body alignment, balance skills, proper breathing, coordinated flowing, and natural, meditative movement.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Relax and enjoy yourself. In practice, we allow the movement to happen. When the mind and body are relaxed and loose, the qi and blood flow more freely, allowing the body’s internal systems to balance each other.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Tai chi and qigong are wonderful modalities to bring health to the body, peace to the mind, and calmness to the spirit. If people can deal with life’s issues from a calm, centered place, we can flow with life’s changes rather than feel stress through them. Learning how to relax through change is tai chi.
What do you love most about your job?
Seeing people’s lives improve from the inside and out. Seeing the amazement in their faces when they feel their life force energy, and their knowing they are participating in a practice with purpose.
