Traditional Yang Tai Chi
 傳統楊式太極


Yang Tai Chi or Yang Tai Chi Chuan is the most widely practiced Tai Chi style worldwide today. Many Tai Chi masters, Sifus and practitioners have contributed to promote this life-time treasure.

Yang Tai Chi is highly regarded for its graceful, slow, even, and circular movements, which have great benefits for health, both externally and internally.

Our Yang Tai Chi Style form followed the lineage of Yang Tai Chi founder Master Yang Luchan to Master Yang Chengfu and onto Master Fu's family.

Our Tai Chi classes practice the Authentic Traditional Tai Chi Long Form which is composed of 85 movements. in addition to Yang Tai Chi, our classes also teach QiGong and Tai Chi warm-up exercises including standing post, relaxation, balancing, ascending, descending, opening, closing and breathing moves.


QiGong or Chi Kung or  Chi Gung 氣功

The origin of this ancient Chinese exercise "QiGong" could be traced as far back as 4000 year ago. Wikepedia defines QiGong "a practice of aligning body, breath, and mind for health, meditation, and martial arts training. With roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts, qigong is traditionally viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance qi (chi) or what has been translated as "life energy".

Practicing and mastering QiGong enable a practitioner to reach a higher realms of awareness, discover the inner true nature of human potential.

QiGong can be grouped into Quiet QiGong 静功 and Movement QiGong 動功. Quiet QiGong involves mediation, relexation, breathing, concentration and power of mind to direct internal Energy "Qi" througout merdiian paths inside a person's body. Movement QiGong in various forms and disciplines also involves all the above with additional co-ordination of slow flowing movements, deep rhythmic breathing and colaboration of mind.

Qigong is now practiced throughout China and worldwide for recreation, exercise and relaxation, preventive medicine and self-healing, complementary and alternative medicine, meditation and self-cultivation, and training for martial arts

Benefits of practicing both Tai Chi & QiGong

It is generally believed that practicing both Tai Chi and Qigong at the same time is most benefitial for health and martial arts training.
