Screen shot 2014-06-17 at 8.48.27 PMDaviddorianross.com is the world’s first fully live online Taiji (Tai Chi) Academy and Wellness Studio. This is the home of TaijiFit: Bootcamp for the Soul. Created by International Taiji Master Instructor David-Dorian Ross, TaijiFit is a full body workout that makes Taiji more fun and accessible, and fitness more graceful and effective. David-Dorian personally teaches a free “TaijiFit-to-Go” class Mon-Sat at 5 & 6 am PST – 15 minutes of Flow and five minutes of inspiration to start your day in Balance. Our other instructors teach free evening classes M-W and Fri at 5 pm PST. Come take a class and see for yourself what it’s all about!

Our program is really about much more than fitness for the body. We believe that by learning how to get into a state of “Flow” – moving with effortless strength and coordination – you bring your whole life into better balance and Harmony. We are the alternative Extreme Fitness.

The studio schedule also includes classes in yoga, Nia (coming soon) and Classical TaijiQuan. One-to-one training and personal study with David-Dorian Ross is also available. The studio offers a mix of both free and paid classes, as well as workshops and teacher certification training. Classes at this studio are all held live, in real time via 2-way video. Students can all see and hear the instructors and each other, while the instructor can see all the participants. Students can ask questions, follow cues, get corrections and encouragement – in real time. All one needs is a computer, a webcam and an internet connection.
