Mission: Hiromi T’ai Chi is a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching and promoting the health benefits and art of T’ai Chi Ch’uan in the Charlottesville community.
We offer training in the Cheng-Ming System as taught by Great Grandmaster Wang Shu-Jin. Our Enrichment programs offer classes for At-Risk youth, After School program for city and public school students, and Seniors in the community.
T’ai Chi Ch’uan (Taijiquan) is a martial art characterized by soft, slow flowing movements of the torso and arms coordinated with weight shifts and steps.
It emphasizes relaxation, and is a form of meditation in motion. The benefits of T’ai Chi Ch’uan include improved balance, muscle tone and stress reduction. (Find out more…)
Ch’i Kung (Qigong) is an ancient Chinese system of self-cultivation developed specifically for protecting health and promoting vitality, while cultivating spiritual awareness and insight. It consists of a series of fluid movements coordinated with the breath to increase flow of energy throughout the body and the mind while standing, sitting or walking. (Find out more…)
Teaching philosophy: These arts can best be passed down in a teacher-to-student relationship. We provide one-on-one instruction to all students. Classes are ongoing and students can start any time, and proceed at their own pace.
Hiromi Tai Chi is proud to be a part of Martha Jefferson’s Child Teen Fitness Event on Saturday at Carver Recreation Center. We will be demonstrating several forms and answering questions about T’ai Chi.
Come welcome Spring with two workshops with Hiromi Sensei on Saturday March 22!
Date: Saturday, March 22

Walking Meditation Workshop
Time: 8:30 – 10:30am
This easy-to-learn eight set of Walking Meditation allows all joints to loosen up and improves balance and coordination. Ch’i (life-force energy) starts to flow through the body’s channels while blood surges through veins and arteries and brings a state of tranquility.
T’ai Chi Basics Workshop
Time: 10:45 – 12:45pm
14-step T’ai Chi is the foundation for the Cheng-Ming T’ai Chi long form. Hiromi will explain the basic stance, footwork, and a connection to the core which all T’ai Chi practitioners revisit. For beginners, we will learn the basic stance and movements. For experienced students, we will deepen our practice by focusing on several T’ai Chi principles. After this workshop, you will feel energized and relaxed.
Both beginner and intermediate students are welcome!
