Barrie Tai Chi & Qigong
Barrie Tai Chi is an established internal martial arts club located in Barrie Ontario. We are actively recruiting new members that have an interest in training in Tai Chi, Qigong, Tai Chi Chuan or Zhan Zhuang.
Whether you are new to Tai Chi and Qigong or a senior student that wishes to perhaps experience the arts from a new perspective, we are sure that our relaxed and informative classes will enhance your practice.
Tai Chi and Qigong are rapidly gaining acceptance in western society as a proactive approach to health and longevity. The benefits include (but are not limited to) physical exercise, stress management, balancing the internal energy systems, expansion of lung capacity which promotes oxygenation of the blood, detoxification, emotional balance, mental acuity, strengthening the lower body, enhanced physical balance, increased self awareness and spiritual progress.
The training at Barrie Tai Chi and Qigong encompasses the fundamentals, philosophy and energetic aspects of Tai Chi and Qigong. We strive to educate the students to the reality that everything we participate with is in fact energy and then we introduce concepts and training to help facilitate that energetic relationship. Eventually the student will learn to engage the world from an energetic perspective rather than a physical one and will thus see and participate in the world from an enhanced point of view.
