Project DAO Qigong & Tai Chi Classes 2024

Our classes are suitable for everyone from complete beginners to seasoned practitioners, and for all ages and fitness levels.

You can sign up for a course, or drop in for a class (pay-as-you-go option). If you’re a regular, save when you pre-pay for 10 classes at a time (pack option).

Read a bit more about Qigong here and Tai Chi here.

The Tai Chi form we teach is in the Chen style, however those who have practiced other styles are most welcome – basic principles are the same.

Qigong in the Park

We meet in Redfern Park every Saturday morning at 8:30am. Book a class with John by heading to our online booking site.

Qigong is a powerful way to improve vitality and develop calmness. In this class we will learn self-healing techniques as well as meditations and exercises to gather qi and promote the healthy free-flow of qi in the body.


Tuesday Taichi

Join us on Tuesday mornings for Tai Chi class at 7:30am in Redfern Park. Classes can be booked via John’s calendar on our booking site.

No better way to start your day than with an hour of Tai Chi!

The class will be beneficial to beginners as well as those with previous experience.



There will be no classes held between 23 Dec 2023 to 6 Jan 2024. Generally, we do not practice on public holidays – but John will provide  plenty of notice if classes are going ahead.

Classes are held in Redfern Park for Qigong and Tai Chi. 

Our spot in Redfern Park is on the Chalmers Street side, about 100m up from Woolworths on the paved space near the children’s play area. If it’s raining we meet behind the café opposite Woolworths under the overhang. In case we miss each other, John’s mobile number is – 0478902859

Wear clothing that will allow you to move easily, and flat shoes – the less heel the better. Something like Vans should be ideal, or you can just go barefoot in the grass!

Beginners are absolutely welcome. To jump-start your practice, you might like to consider attending a one-on-one Movement Therapy session with John for in-depth assessment and personalised instruction.

There are a few options:

  1. If you’re a patient at Project DAO, we will simply charge your credit card on file.
  2. If you’re not a patient, please ensure to have your CC no. handy (with expiry and CVC) so we can process your payment from the park at the start of class via Project DAO’s secure payment portal JaneApp.
  3. You can purchase a class pass via our website by simply clicking the button above. 

John is a certified Tai Chi and Qigong instructor, trained in China, with over 20+ years experience practicing in the UK and AU as an osteopath, massage therapist and personal trainer. John’s students enjoy his calm, thorough, inclusive and supportive teaching style.
