The center

Maine Center for Taijiquan & Qigong is located at the rear of the building at 500 Forest Ave. in Portland, Maine.  Studio pictures here.

The center is beautiful and open space with a bright atmosphere. The approximately 1500 square feet, are divided into two studios with hardwood floors, two waiting areas, changing stalls, and restroom. Drinking water is available in both studios. We strive to make your experience here comfortable and the environment conducive to learning and personal growth.

As part of MCT’s vision of bringing Taiji & Qigong into the mainstream through community outreach, we have sustained partnerships with various health, community and educational institutions including, MaineHealth Learning Resource Centers, The Cancer Community Center, Portland Adult Education, S.P. Parks & Recreation, Goodwill Industries, and University of Southern Maine Employee Wellness. Please contact us if you, your employer, or civic group is interested in an on-site Taiji presentation or program.
