What Is Tai Chi?

Tai Chi consists of slow gentle movements that bring about a relaxed state of mind and body. Regular practice strengthens the legs, improves balance and increases qi (internal energy).

Tai Chi is both relaxing and energizing, bringing about a feeling of wellbeing.

About Us

About Us

All classes are taught by teachers trained by the Tai Chi Foundation (TCF), an international school with branches around the US and in Europe. Teaching is done in teams of two or more teachers so there is always someone to follow. The precise method of the TCF emphasizes principles of movement that make it easy to learn the tai chi form.

The School of Tai Chi Chuan Los Angeles was founded by Margaret Olmsted,

a senior teacher and Legacy Holder of the Tai Chi Foundation.
