What to wear

Please wear comfortable clothing and flat shoes (Shoes that don't tip you forward when on your toes).   Please remember to turn off the cellphone



Tai chi has many benefits. Sometimes we can be aware of these immediately and others are more long term.   I have casual options for people to try the classes and see how they feel. This may be important if you are experiencing pain  I suggest that you come three times at least if confidence is the issue.  Sorry, I do not have a free trial class....instead, the more you come the cheaper it gets.



Tai Chi and Qigong classes are ongoing.   The classes listed below are for beginners.  Please make contact to see if there is space in the more advanced classes.  They are on the same days as the beginners' classes

When I was in my twenties I had a brain injury from being in a car accident. This affected my balance and co-ordination creating some real difficulties in being able to walk. I have found Tai Chi and Qigong just fabulous for increasing and maintaining my ability to move. Rose is very knowledgeable and I am impressed by the subtlities of the forms that we learn. I practise everyday.          Trish DeHaan


I started learning Tai Chi after having a hip replacement and it has been so helpful in dealing with pain and getting back on my feet faster . I always feel really relaxed after going to Tai Chi.  To me it feels more relaxing than having a massage         Joy S


I have been learning Tai Chi for over ten years.  I'm willing to cross town to come to Rose's classes as she is a very knowledgeable teacher.  Hamilton
