Learn Mind-Body Fitness

Taiji, Qigong and Meditation (and now MELT) have a long list of health benefits and with all the new research being done the list is just getting longer—they are an ideal way to stay healthy, fit, flexible and happy in mind & body! They help you cultivate greater awareness to avoid illness & injury, to understand how stress is affecting you & what to do about it and are a great way to maintain equanimity & a positive presence in your daily life.

Regular repetition is the key to unlocking all the benefits & the ritual of a class or personal practice feeds the spirit & soul.
