A year ago I could only move my arm in pain because of my bad shoulder. Then I discovered Tai Chi Vienna. Now I can move it again like a pinwheel without pain. Even the upper shelves are no longer a problem J.Tai Chi is my medicine for the second half of life!

After many weeks, I would now like to say a very, very big and heartfelt thank you for converting everything to online operation so quickly and with such commitment.

And that you make sure every day that the hours run so smoothly and are certainly not only for me again and again an opportunity to stop something in this strange situation.

I'm also noticing right now that the variety of exercise I've had in normal times seems to have helped a lot in keeping my pain at bay.

And although I am fortunate enough to still ride to work often and thus get "exercise" outdoors by bike, it is still one-sided, so your lessons are a great help in adding a little more variation to the movements.

What surprises me and makes me happy every time is that, despite the distance and the small screen, I always have the feeling in between that I am gradually "arriving" more in the movements (as far as I can even call it that as a beginner).

Many thanks again to both of you and see you shortly at one of the next lessons!

We are very happy that the online courses will continue, especially in our current situation where we have to commute between Vienna and Carinthia, it makes us happy not to have to do without Tai chi.

Thank you for the great and extensive offer of the online courses and your commitment! It's nice to be able to practice Tai Chi regularly in these strange times and strengthen body and mind. Thank you for the positive energy!

I find the extra offer of Tao massage and meditation especially relaxing and enjoyable.

Thank you dear both [Bettina and Georg]! It is sooo great that it works so well with the lessons. It goes so well that I notice (in effect) only little difference to the life lessons in the center. For you it must be very exhausting - only: you don't notice anything about it. It looks easy and simple to combine movements, breathing and speech.

Anyway, through the lessons and continuing in the form, this strange house arrest time is much easier to endure.

Big thanks!

Herzlichen Dank für die einwandfreie Organisation der Online-Kurse! Das ist eine wichtige Unterstützung für mich und ich bin überzeugt, auch für alle anderen TeilnehmerInnen! Neben den positiven Wirkungen von Tai Chi ist es einfach wichtig zu wissen und zu erleben, dass ein schöner Teil des Lebens (was die Tai Chi Kurse sind) weiter läuft!

Ich danke Euch auch für den Sonderkurs TAO Massage und Meditation und für den Betrieb in den Osterferien!

I am a classical singer and vocal coach:

As a dramatic soprano, I am currently singing many concerts, mainly in Vienna.

As a vocal pedagogue, I love to help people who love singing to re-activate the natural processes in the body - the optimal interplay of breathing, bodywork and voice, so that the voice can reach its full potential in the shortest possible time.

Here's a little feedback:

I go to Bettina's or Georg's Tai Chi school twice a week for training. For me it is very relaxing and energizing at the same time. Bettina and Georg are wonderful teachers. They have a lot of experience and a comprehensive knowledge. They work with a lot of empathy, so that everyone feels comfortable in class.

I am a classical singer and my singing technique has improved a lot since I started learning Tai Chi. Besides the group training, I do a few minutes of Tai Chi or various Qigong exercises every day before singing. If I skip several days of Tai Chi training, I notice it immediately when I sing.

Through regular Tai Chi training, my voice has become audibly freer and stronger. My breathing has become deeper and my diaphragm more flexible, allowing me to sing much longer phrases.

I would recommend Tai Chi to any singer or musician who works with the breath.

Found my new home here after martial arts became too exhausting for me. Totally great trainers and very nice people who all have the same goal.

Especially pleasant is the extensive range of classes for beginners and advanced, so there are no excuses for not having time.

For me as a musician, Tai Chi also has a lot to do with music, the body and the mind must be brought into harmony to help the soul express itself.

Tai Chi healed me in the first place. I had scoliosis and after three years I realized that my body was suddenly straight.

I had an injury and in the first Tai Chi lesson I already felt how suddenly the muscle was supplied with blood again. That was a very impressive feeling for me.

It is very good for me to do Tai Chi. I notice that I have a completely different posture. I go twice a week and it does me a lot of good.

If I don't do Tai Chi for a week, I can hear it in my voice.

Jana Bartho, Sängerin, 16. Dezember 2019

Tai Chi has always fascinated me, so I recently started looking for a suitable school.

At the beginning of June I finally found one. Above all, it was crucial that here you are not bound to a certain lesson as in other schools in Vienna but can go as often as you want. At least two units are offered per day. The school in Schottenfeldgasse is very bright and tastefully decorated. There are sanitary facilities as well as two changing rooms. Since recently there is also a huge mirror which makes learning the movements much easier.

The class lasts at least 75 minutes and the two teachers Bettina and Georg sometimes go overtime to answer one or the other question. In the first part Qigong exercises are done and after a tea break, which is a great opportunity to get to know the other participants, Tai Chi is taught.

Bettina and Georg are very experienced teachers that I noticed very early, I feel very well taken care of. Tai Chi in the form it is taught here is very complex and one is led very carefully and conscientiously deeper and deeper into the next level of the individual movements.

I have been here for 2 months and I am still enthusiastic about Tai Chi and the immensely positive effect it has on my body, my soul and my energy balance.

Rafael Kriks auf Yelp, 25. August 2015

Bettina and Georg are fantastic. You can see the long experience in teaching Tai Chi Gong. For me, Tai Chi Vienna is the perfect way to help me achieve relaxation, balance, energy through Tai Chi! Thank you!

Rafa Krix auf Facebook, 12. August 2015

I am glad to have found this school!

Comment: I must correct my comment: It was not me who found the Tai Chi school in Schottenfeldgasse, but the time was ripe for me to be found. I have been searching for the right way to learn Tai Chi for many years - the search is over! I feel very comfortable in the circle of my teachers and fellow students. I look forward to the training sessions from week to week! Thank you, Bettina and Georg!

The group is great, the exercises very relaxing. The trainers are very sympathetic and the tea break great to talk with the other participants about this and that.
