Ego. Discord. Relationships. Anxiety. Resistance to change. Despair.
If you’re human (we’re guessing you are!), you’ve probably struggled with at least one, if not a few, of these things. It’s normal and it’s ok, life is not perfect and that’s a good thing.
Have you ever dug your heels in when something changed, being certain change would only make things worse (yet knowing change is inevitable).
Plus, learn about Stoicism, Logotherapy, Taoism and more.

Frequently Asked Questions
Learn How it Works
What's so awesome about being a TaijiFit Instructor?
Spiritually: The Flow State itself is enough to want to deepen your TaijiFit practices, but being an Instructor means that you have the knowledge to spread this life-changing state with the world. Leaving good in one's wake is a primary reason that TaijiFit exists.
Physically: Movement is good for the body—we all know that. But did you know that Tai Chi has scientifically proven benefits such as higher immunity (that's so important in today's world), improved cardiovascular health, flexibility, and balance? Check out the Harvard study here.
Mentally: Stress is a killer. TaijiFit teaches you how to drastically reduce your stress response, which means an easier time for your mind and parasympathetic nervous system. You'll also find a sense of community here which is very important to our mental well-being as humans. And don't forget that Tai Chi by itself has been proven to increase memory retention and decrease the physical symptoms of neurological conditions, as stated in this article by Next Avenue.
What are the physical requirements?
We cannot offer medical advice and suggest you reach out to your health care team in order to determine if this is right for you.
Please note that some of the Fusion Courses may be more physically strenuous than 101, 200, and 300.
Do you offer Military Discounts?
Before any purchase, please reach out to our team at [email protected] and let them know that you’re a Veteran.
Because of the way our system works, we aren’t able to offer the 10% Military Discount in conjunction with another discount. Our TaijiFit Veterans have let us know that they enjoy using their Military Discount to purchase a Membership Tier, and then they can use their Membership Tier discount to purchase classes, courses, etc.
Who can join the academy? Do I need experience?
Please note, in order to become a certified TaijiFit Instructor and be part of the VA CCN, you must be able to pass a background check. This is a federal requirement.
What if I don't want to be an Instructor?
If you do want to be an Instructor but do not want to be part of the VA CCN, that's okay too. That is also entirely optional.
How much are the courses?
If you do not have a Membership Tier, the costs are:
TaijiFit Fundamentals: $75
TaijiFit Academy Classes (101, 200, etc.): $500
Note: All prices are in USD. All policies are stated on the purchase page of any TaijiFit product, course, membership, etc. and are subject to change at any time.
What equipment do I need?
You will also need a computer or tablet that has a camera, microphone, and speaker. You can use earbuds instead of a microphone and speaker.
We do require you to be on camera during the Live classes. These are hosted on Zoom, so you will also need a computer or tablet that is capable of using this software / app.
