Embark upon an adventure that will assist in the well-being of your body, mind and spirit through working with energy (Qi) in your own space and time.
Qigong ang Tai Chi involves an ancient Chinese system of postures, exercises, breathing techniques and moving meditations that originated 5000-7000 years ago.
Qigong is a rhythmic set of moving gestures that work and play with the Life Force Energy, Qi.
Tai Chi, originating from Qigong, is a series of gestures linked together that follows a fluid pattern.
These two forms inspire harmony and balance within yourself.
Regardless of one’s range of motion, this practice will assist in overall health and wellbeing, balancing of body and soul. Qigong and Tai Chi can be done standing, sitting or lying down.

”I really wasn't sure what to expect at first, but even with the first [Qi Gong] class, I knew I had stumbled onto something that would be with me for a long time. Sarah is an amazing Teacher who imparts her wisdom and calmness on everyone in class and is really interested in helping people move their bodies and energy. I look forward to this class every week. So far, Qi Gong has taught me how to trust my intuition and enjoy myself (body, mind, spirit) on various levels. I can't recommend this class, or Sarah Harrison, enough. Just try it once and you'll see.” -R.F.
With enthusiasm and joy, I have accomplished my Qigong and Tai Chi teaching certification through the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi. I successfully completed three intensive workshops in 2016 that satisfied the requirements to be certified a Qigong and Tai Chi Instructor at the national level through the National Qigong Association. I've also had the pleasure of 8 years and 73 hours of formal training with Master Teacher, Pragata Blaise and have received his blessings to teach the Shaolin 18 Lohan Hands of Qigong,
