Mission Statement: Tai Chi East-West Alliance (TEA) as a non-profit organization provides safe and beneficial exercise and relaxation programs based on the integration of the ancient internal energy arts of Qigong and Tai Chi and contemporary knowledge of health, wellness, and longevity.
Our vision is that:
Individuals, organizations, and companies that have a desire for non-traditional and culturally rich programming in the internal energy arts and other wellness related areas are able to find programs with educated and experienced instructors who promote safe and beneficial programs in appropriate environments.
Children, teens, and young adults find programs to improve mental concentration, focus, creativity, and productivity, to reduce tension, anxiety, depression, anger, and fatigue, to realize that we have the response-ability to choose how we react to what is going on around us.
People with chronic illnesses, stress disorders, or injury rehabilitation needs find safe and simple programs that improve their mind, body and spirit.
Our aging population will be able to experience integrated eastern and western wellness practices for the improvement of the quality of their life and therefore reduce the government burden on health care costs.
Internal arts students who wish to “offer the teaching” of the ancient internal energy arts have opportunities to become certified instructors and are professionally supported so as to make more programs available to serve the population.
We became a non-profit:
