Qigong, Tai Chi and Yoga improve the various bodily functions by improving the body's natural energy flow and capacity with simple standing or seating postures, body movement and harmonized breath. The simple movements were developed by Chinese and Indians over the last 5000 years to follow the natural flow of the earth's energy and improve the circulation of internal Qi (Chi) from the body and external Qi from nature, utilizing this energy to stimulate and balance the various functions of the body, improving health, well-being and inner peace.

Yoga has traditionally be known to come from India. China also has a great yoga tradition. Yoga creates balance in the mind and body through developing strength, flexibility and equanimity. This is done through the practice of poses or postures, each of which has powerful physical, mental and spiritual benefits. The poses can be done quickly in succession, creating heat in the body through movement or more slowly to increase stamina and perfection of each pose. The poses are a constant, but the approach to them varies depending on the tradition in which the teacher is trained. Along with instructing all the traditional styles of yoga, we specialize in a rare chinese yoga that brings a unique and powerful yoga tradition to the Southern California yoga community.
