Both classes are excellent therapies for those individuals who in high-stress life situations and are likely to enhance athletic performance in other day-to-day activities & sports.

The class assumes no prior experience in Tai Chi & is suitable for beginners in the art.
Qi Gong is the Chinese art of Life Force Cultivation. The Level 1 practices that Russell teaches consist of 4 components:

This set of exercises is documented to be at least 2300 years old. Connective tissue stiffness is replaced with youthful pliability. Helps to clear stagnation of Qi.
(2) Dantien (“Field of Precious Elixir”) Qigong. Major Qi centers are awakened & balanced via breath training, visualizations, & mindful movement.
(3) Joint releases. A set of circular movements handed down from Tai Chi masters that release bound energy of the joints.
