The Qigong workshops have been moved to June 25/26 and June 27/28, 2022 due to the continuing threat posed by the Corona Virus. Those who have already registered have the option of having their fees returned or applying them to the new workshop time.
Philippe Gagnon's workshop series which was scheduled for June, 2020, will be rescheduled in 2021.
Tai Chi Nanaimo..Tai Chi for ALLi
A 108 move health-oriented tai chi set forms the core of our programs which we practice and teach through our not-for-profit, volunteer-run organization.
Tai chi is a complete whole-body exercise that can be practiced anywhere, anytime, at any age, with no need for special gear or clothing. Our accredited volunteer instructors teach beginners and continuing classes.
Beginner classes run for four months, after which participants can join continuing classes to improve their Tai Chi and to prepare them for our other classes.
We also practice Lok Hup, Tai Chi Sabre, Tai Chi Sword, and Xingyi. All of these, being based on common principles, inform one another. Philippe Gagnon, one of the original students of Moy Lin-Shin, the originator of the forms which we practice, supports us with yearly workshops.
In addition to the above, we have the fortune of being one of the centres on the planet where Dr Eva Wong has chosen to conduct her Daoist Qigong multi level training through yearly workshops. For those who have begun this training, we are able to support their practice with weekly practice sessions.
Annual Membership: $10. For those joining after July 1st, the fee for the remainder of that calendar year is reduced to $5.
FEE STRUCTURE AS OF JAN 1, 2020.
- Annual membership: $10 (see above).
- Beginner classes, four months: $80.
- Activity fee for continuing classes: $200 per year, due Jan 1st annually or $120 for 6 months, due Jan 1st and July 1st.

Drop-ins are welcome, first time free to check us out.
