What is The TaijiFit™ Experience?
TaijiFit™ is the most unique workout to come along in decades. It’s a ride along the wave of your Inner Power, like surfing on your own life energy – Qi. It combines the best elements of fitness, meditation and the ancient martial art of Taiji (Tai Chi).
When you take a TaijiFit™ class, you find yourself moving your body with the grace and confidence of the ancient Taiji masters who learned the secret of balancing yin and yang – strength with beauty, power with peace, endurance with flow. There is no routine or choreography to memorize or “get right.” The TaijiFit™ instructor will lead you into Flow using the Qi Cueing method developed by David-Dorian Ross. Attending every class and practicing at home just to “keep up” will not be needed. Come as often as your schedule allows and never get behind.
Exploring the Frontier of How We Teach and Learn Taiji-
David-Dorian Ross is the creator of TaijiFit™: Meditation in Motion and the founder of the TaijiFit™ instructor training program. He is America’s “Chi-vangelist,” whose public appearances introduce people to the benefits, accessibility and sheer joy of learning Taiji (Tai Chi). Inside Kung-fu Magazine called him “the man who brought Tai Chi mainstream.” David-Dorian also holds the record as America’s competitive Tai Chi Champion – winning 8 US Gold Medals, a World Silver medal and 2 World Bronze medals in Tai Chi performance (still the highest record of any American Tai Chi athlete).
