Sifu Gabriel welcomes you to

Phoenix Virtue Temple


At Phoenix Virtue Temple, Sifu (Master Teacher) Janis Gabriel is Abbess in Residence.  Sifu teaches Qigong, T’ai Chi, body dynamics/movement, meditation and visualization practices, and will be teaching classes in Religious/Philosophical Taoism in the near future.  (See the T'ai Chi and Qigong page for a brief description of both.) Sifu Gabriel is currently teaching the Yang Short Form of T’ai Chi and teaches in a manner more in keeping with Chinese tradition rather than the more ‘Westernized’ versions taught in many areas of the United States.  Please note that with respect to pain management, etc. an even shorter form can be utilized, as it is not necessary to learn a great many movements, rather it is more important to learn safe, gentle, healing movements.
