The North Shore Tai Chi & Qigong Instructors, teaching at five locations, specialize in teaching beginners the basics.

We have many groups of people whose experience ranges from

    • Brand new to tai chi & qigong (also called Newbies)

    • Beginners level 2 (those who have completed at least one beginner form) and

    • Intermediates (those who have completed at least one intermediate form plus at least one beginner form).

Our main interest is practicing tai chi to help us improve and/or maintain health. We hope you'll join us one day soon.

Not sure if learning Tai Chi (taijiquan) is for you? Check out our new FAQS and see if we have answered your questions. Go here:



    Pick a day and time that works for you.

    If you are not pre-registering (some Meetups require it) then just Drop In.

    Come early so you can watch the Meetup if it is already in session.

    Feel free to come right in the gymnasium or room and have a seat. We welcome all visitors.

    What should you wear? Comfortable running shoes (no flip flops or sandles) and loose clothing, like sweat pants, a t-shirt or yoga-type pants.

    If you are wanting to attend Qigong, please arrive early and speak to the Instructor just before class starts. All Qigong classes are "follow-the-leader" type classes and do not require any memorization. Tai Chi does require a little extra brain-work, which is part of the reason why it is so good for the mind, body AND soul.

Don't hesitate to call 604-986-9276 and speak to one of the Instructors who can help you decide which Meetup will work best for you.

You might have some rehabilitation issues, illness-related concerns that you might want to share with us before your first Meetup. You can also email us:

These Meetups are about sharing... sharing the love of Taiji & Qigong. We hope you'll join us soon. Don't forget to browse through the rest of this website. There is a ton of information if you are at all interested in tai chi. Enjoy!
