We try to maintain a balance of taichi and qigong classes being taught in the Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte area. The ideal condition is an ongoing taichi and qigong class on separate days. Class availability is normally a function of number of persons desiring a particular form of taichi or qigong.

A Dao Yin Sheng Gong "Stretch and Balance" class has been suspended for the Summer and will return this Fall. Wednesdays class is 1 hour and held  at the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association (PGICA) in Punta Gorda, Fl.  Consider attending and learn balance.

All classes may be taught as needed elsewhere, simply contact me for details at email peacerivertaichi@gmail.com

The cost will be $96 for the 8 weeks or $15 weekly

​Starting Friday January 11

It has been a long time since Peace River Tai Chi has offered an evening class. With the increase of stress in our daily lives and the health issues that brings, we felt it was time to offer the community an easy way to manage your personal stress. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has proven that through meditation, QiGong, and diet your health can improve by stress management.

While not listed as a class, we conduct a FREE 1 hour workout of qi gong and taiji for the public.  This workout is conducted in Gilchrist Park, Punta Gorda in front of the Gazebo.  This workout is held at 9:30-10:30AM every Saturday, rain or shine.
