The Peterborough Tai Chi Association is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to bringing Tai Chi to every section of the community, and to promoting the greater sense of well-being that comes from being able to set and achieve a goal at any age to optimize the functioning of your body.

The Peterborough Tai Chi Association was established in September 1976. Our local group began at Trent University and we held weekly classes in the dining hall of Otonabee College for some years.

As interest in Tai Chi spread into the non-university community, we moved our meeting place to beautiful downtown Peterborough, Ontario, in order to make activities more accessible to area residents. Other classes are also held at other locations for the benefit of those unable to come to our George Street location.

TO MAKE TAI CHI AVAILABLE TO ALL: We are dedicated to bringing Tai Chi to every section of the Community, so that its many benefits are available to all who wish to experience them.

TO PROMOTE THE HEALTH IMPROVING QUALITIES OF TAI CHI: Practiced diligently, Tai Chi cultivates both mind and body to restore and maintain good health. Our efforts are directed at making these benefits better known and understood, in order to promote mental and physical well-being in the community.

TO HELP OTHERS: The foundation of Tai Chi is compassion. Our underlying charitable orientation is in keeping with our  values of selflessness and service to others. For this reason we are a non-profit organization.
