These LIVE  classes meet outdoors in a spacious area doing Chi Gong warm-ups, refining an easy Five Element T'ai Chi form together and deepening in the principles of this Taoist moving meditation with a group of like-minded classmates. 


Start your week off by cultivating a variety of tools for grounding, centering, and balance during these times through mindful movement practices.  There will be a blend of gentle Chi Gong exercises, an easy T'ai Chi sequence, guided meditations, and energy meridian massage points.  These various resources will support building vital life-force CHI, help keep your immune system strong, and emotions balanced. Exercises will be geared toward releasing stress and cultivating clear, balanced & flowing vital energy.  Our T'ai Chi form will be an easy FIVE-ELEMENT sequence that will be very translatable in  either LIVE classes or live Zoom Video format. A handout and two u-tube video will be provided so that you can practice on your own outside of our weekly class time.  This series is open to anyone who wants to join us.  


Contact me if you want to do an Intro Video or one-on-one class to join our group.  This will be an ongoing group.  We are doing live classes in Summer/Fall and On-Line classes in



Testimonial from a student in our Spring class series:

"I am just finishing up an 8 week Tai Chi/Chi Gong on line course with Janice Marie Durand.  I would never have imagined that this course could happen on line, but there were about 10 of us participating and all of us reported feeling really comfortable with the form by session 7.  This is a wonderful resource in our community during these challenging and hopefully transformational COVID times.

The form is beautiful and learnable.  The movement meditation helps to bring a wonderful quality of relaxation and openness that is so relieving and balancing, particularly at this time we are moving through.  The form is based in five element theory, which informs much acupuncture practice.  As you are doing the form, you are actually giving yourself an acupuncture treatment."
