Blooming Lotus Tai Chi offers classes and provides information about Tai Chi and Qi Gong in the greater Santa Cruz, Monterey, and Santa Clara County area.

We are trained in the rare Nam Hoa Temple style. All instructors have studied directly with, and are certified by Nam Hoa Temple Internal Arts Association Tai Chi Master Jim Scott-Behrends.

Some of our instructors have also trained in the internationally recognized Tai Chi for Health Programs.

See our schedule page for class information. Feel free to contact us by email or to contact individual instructors for questions about class content.
