In today's business world, employees are bombarded with information
from dozens of sources every day: Memos, email, telephone calls, voicemail,
faxes, personal contact, and many more.
A Tai Chi/Qigong Seminar would relieve stress and help your employees
focus on their task and become more productive.

In addition to all of the great benefits of Tai Chi/Qigong training,
this is something they will look forward to. Employees will want to come to work!
Not only will workers call in sick less frequently, but they will feel better,
have increased self-discipline, and become more productive.
Many major companies use Tai Chi as a highly effective workplace wellness tool,
and no wonder, when you consider the following: It requires no equipment or
no special clothing. (It can be done in normal business attire.) It provides a
cardiovascular workout, a stress cleansing, a regenerating freshness,
and a euphoric endorphin release all WITHOUT BREAKING A SWEAT in a gentle
20-minute exercise anyone can do!
