Shortform Tai Ji Quan and Qigong breathing class - One of the Easiest Ways to Live Longer and Happier. Go home with a manual to practice for life.
How can a few simple movements make you happier and live longer? If they’re easy to do, you’ll do them everyday. These time tested, ancient movement exercises are suited for all abilities. Known as Tai Ji Quan and Qigong, these simplified 8 forms can be learned in just a few sessions, and practiced everyday. These short forms capture the essence of Taiqi and Qigong. They are very beneficial and anyone can do them, posing no age limitation or wheelchair limitation.
If you’ve ever tried excercises like Tai Chi, you’ve felt the tangible peace that gentle movement and balance can immediately give you. They’re normally very numerous and integrated movements, but if you forget one – you’ll likely forget the rest.

' The possibility of learning Ba Duan Jin at Eastover enhanced our stay. We arrived tired and were happy to be given the opportunity to learn this series of health strengthening exercises. We were pleasantly surprised to discover how 8 simple movements gave us access to a new inner strength. Despite our days full of activities, we remained alert and open. We are grateful to Maggie Chan for this gift she kindly offered us.'
