The life enhancing benefits of Taijiquan and Qigong (Chi Kung) are well documented and increasingly supported by research in the west. Current research has proven the beneficial and therapeutic benefits of Taijiquan. Unlike other forms of exercise Taiji (Tai Chi) and Qigong require students to practice in the most unhurried, gentle and relaxed way possible in order to gain maximum benefits. The unhurried and effortless movements are practiced with calm concentration making practice extremely pleasurable. In fact, if the exercise is not comfortable and enjoyable you are probably doing something wrong.

The Three Treasures School of Taijiquan aims to provide classes in Chen and Yang style Taiji and Qigong which are suitable for people of all ages and levels of fitness. The school is supported and monitored by Abingdon & Witney College and the Oxfordshire Adult Learning Skills Funding Agency to ensure the highest standard of teaching and best practice is maintained.
