The Phoenix Tai Chi Centre was founded in London, Ontario by Gloria Jenner in 1988.  Gloria has been studying Tai Chi and Qigong since 1980.  Gloria and her staff teach Yang Style Tai Chi, Tai Chi Sword and Qigong.

Tai Chi/Taiji 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.

Tai Chi Weapons Training 
Sponsored by Phoenix Tai Chi
Instructor Chuck Stratton

We are very excited to announce a series of weapons classes at the Phoenix Taiji Centre in the hall Church of the Epiphany starting in September.
Chuck has played Tai Chi for the last 32 years and is very dedicated to the Tai Chi forms and has a special love for the weapons that he will be teaching. He began his Tai Chi training with Gloria Jenner at the Phoenix Taiji Centre and in 2000 he began studying under Master Sam Masich and is still a dedicated student of the art. 

Classes will start on September 3 at 7 PM. In this class we will begin with a short dagger form (wooden daggers only, daggers will be available for a nominal cost). We will progress from the dagger to the sabre forms and eventually to the Tai Chi sword forms. These forms are a great way to learn to move our chi not only throughout our bodies but into the weapons as well.

​Tai Chi/Taiji

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 Tai Chi and its related exercise Qigong (‘chi kung’).  Some sitting exercises and work with the Tai 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.

NB: Classes are virtual at present. Contact                     for information and/or to register.  In-person classes may be offered in the autumn.

​Tai Chi for Health Challenges

Tai Chi/Taiji is an ancient Chinese martial art.  It is a slow meditative form of exercise that increases flexibility in both mind and body.  Tai Chi/Taiji combines postures and movements inspired by the natural world into forms which are learned and practiced over a lifetime.  The practice of Tai Chi/Taiji reduces stress, tones muscles, massages joints, improves balance and much more.
