The Collingwood Branch of F.L.K. Taoist Tai Chi is part of a registered charitable organization dedicated to helping its members improve their health.
Our building at 58 George Street in Collingwood is the hub of our activities but we have satellite locations in Owen Sound, Meaford, Thornbury, Wasaga Beach and Creemore. In each location, accredited, volunteer instructors offer classes in Taoist Tai Chiâ„¢ internal arts and methods.
A four-month beginners session introduces students to the gentle movements of this exercise program. Under the direction of an instructor and one or more helpers, students learn to follow the movements of the Taoist Tai Chi â„¢ set. After this introduction, students have the knowledge and confidence to join one or more of our many classes for continuing students. The instructors for continuing students introduce a more dynamic style of movement that incorporates long stretching and increased weight bearing. At this point, the instruction becomes more directed to the individual student and his or her needs.
With regular practice, students begin to enjoy improved health, most notably: improved circulation, balance and posture; increased strength and flexibility; and reduced stress.
Over time, the Taoist Tai Chi movements reach deep inside the body to benefit the entire physiology, including the tendons, joints, spine, connective tissue and internal organs. Practiced without music and with quiet instruction it allows you to restore the calmness and peace of mind often lost through the fast pace of modern life.
Why not come and visit a class and see for yourself why so many people are coming to appreciate this health restoring form of exercise. For more information or to arrange a visit call 705 444 0194 or visit our website.
