The Phoenix T'ai Chi Centre was founded in London, Ontario by Gloria Jenner in 1988. Gloria has been studying T'ai Chi and Qigong since 1980. Gloria and her staff teach Yang Style T'ai Chi, T'ai Chi Sword and Qigong.
T'ai Chi applies the power of fluidity to easing one's daily life. Qigong applies the power of visualization to healing the body.
Both of these exercises apply meditation to relaxing the mind and reducing physical, emotional and spiritual stress.
T'ai Chi is an ancient Chinese martial art. It is a slow meditative form of exercise that increases flexibility in both mind and body. T'ai Chi combines postures and movements inspired by the natural world into forms which are learned and practiced over a lifetime. The practice of T'ai Chi reduces stress, tones muscles, massages joints, improves balance and much more.
Qigong ('chi kung') is the art of strengthening health by focusing the mind and being aware of the breath combined with correct posture and physical movement.
The Qigong positions are designed to affect the movement of energy (chi) and to help chi travel around the body to nourish the body internally and externally.
These classes are geared to individuals with complex health issues including Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and other pain & mobility issues. Classes consist of T’ai Chi and its related exercise Qigong (‘chi kung’). Some sitting exercises and work with the T’ai Chi Ruler are also taught.
The movements are performed according to the physical ability of the student. There is a focus on exercises that can be used for pain management and to address specific health issues. Click for a current flyer Click for a registration form
