Roots and Branches Qigong™

These classes are offered for free (donations accepted)!

(there are occasional schedule adjustments for this class).
Our QiGong, Roots and 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.
To make these offerings possible, as a non-profit, we gratefully accept donations.
Testimonial: “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
To supplement what you learn in Greg’s class, or for those who are not able to attend on Sundays, we recommend the Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday QiGong classes listed on the T’ai Chi Foundation website: Taichifoundation.org/free-live-online-classes.
