AUGUST 31, 2017 CHI WEEKEND AUGUST 19-20, 2017

A wonderful gathering of students enjoyed Chi Weekend with Master Jim on August 19-20, 2017. We look forward to our next gathering in November.


Due to high interest a new class was added on Thursday beginning August 17, 2017 for Part 1A Tai Chi/Qigong taught by Grace Sanchez. To register call the PEP office or register in the office or online. See the schedule on Grace’s page. If you want to register for the next session peruse the schedule and get registered to hold your place. The Part 1 Tai Chi Class Monday session has filled up a few weeks before the series begins so it is best to plan ahead.
