Welcome to Tai Chi Body
Your field guide to releasing pain and finding freedom the Tai Chi way.
If you feel stuck inside your body, you’ve come to the right place. It’s frustrating to continually battle with pain and stiffness, especially if you’ve tried a variety of exercises or therapies to no avail. Simply feeling tight all the time (such as in your hips, back, shoulder, etc.) is troubling, especially if it disrupts your confidence or interferes with the activities you enjoy.
You’ve heard about the benefits of Tai Chi for mental, physical and spiritual health, but it can seem like a big commitment. If you ever tried a class, you’d probably be asked to memorize a lot of complicated movements that didn’t seem to target the actual reason you started in the first place – your health!
That’s where this course comes in!
This course has the most effective Tai Chi exercises in one place to target your exact needs. In only 6 weeks, you’ll be feeling better and moving easier. You’ll practice simple movements to create space in your joints, build stability and feel more connected in your entire body. The best part? You won’t need to spend years on complicated memorization to get results!
A 6-week online course for less pain, greater mobility and freedom of movement. Experience ancient Tai Chi secrets that are immediately applicable, without spending years learning the entire discipline.
Meet Your Instructor
Hello, I’m Gabriel. As a practising kinesiologist and Tai Chi instructor, I’ve helped hundreds of people overcome pain and injuries by dissolving tension and learning functional movement patterns. My group classes and private sessions involve mind-body-spirit integrated healing using a combination of breathwork, Tai Chi, Qigong, active rehab, dance and embodiment coaching. I’ve been practising Tai Chi and Qigong for over twenty years. My work as a kinesiologist and exercise physiologist allows me to short cut the process by zeroing in on the most effective exercises for reducing pain and improving mobility.
Dissolve tightness by unwinding stress
Most exercise and therapeutic modalities treat the body as a simple mechanical system, ignoring the connection between intention, energy and movement. You’ve been prescribed many different stretches, without much lasting impact. That’s because stretching or strengthening on it’s own does nothing to address the root of your stiffness, tightness and pain – which is stress.
In this course, we’ll learn exercises that work by considering the whole body, including the mind. You’ll also practice moving meditation techniques to increase energy, promote relaxation and improve the effectiveness of all your other exercises by helping you to slow down, rather than stress out.
Here’s what you’ll get:

What previous students are saying:
Talia E., physio
Overall I felt loosened up and awesome.
“I’m a physiotherapist and have recommended Tai Chi to many of my clients as a way to improve balance, help with chronic pain or just get people feeling more aware of their bodies. Gabriel’s class surpassed all of my expectations. His simple yet effective cues allowed me to jump right in as a beginner, but still catered to the more experienced participants to further their practice. Overall I left feeling loosened up and awesome. Would 100% recommend to anyone!”
Jenna P., physio
Never found a class that caused my muscles to relax so immediately.
“Gabriel Shaw is an awesome instructor/coach/teacher who is able to gear a class to all levels. I’m a physical therapist & my patients can attest I rant about how great his Tai Chi class is. I don’t think I’ve ever found a class that causes my muscles to relax so immediately. You can tell he is on your side no matter what. I also really appreciate all his insights for helping us to develop more awareness of ourselves, both mentally & physically. Highly recommended instructor for anyone looking to reduce pain, feel better, or build resiliency.”
My chronic back pain has resolved.
“I have benefited a lot from it. I leave each session completely relaxed. My chronic back pain has resolved and my body awareness has increased enormously. Gabriel is an excellent teacher. He is very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging.”
