We like to refer to a TaijiFit workout class as “an experience.” 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. The TaijiFit™ Experience was developed by David-Dorian Ross, who has been studying classical Taijiquan for more than 30 years. “I’ve always felt that Taiji was the most exciting, energizing and beneficial exercise ever invented. For my entire career I’ve worked on ways to introduce it to more people, so they can experience what I’ve learned.”
