Thursdays, 9:00 - 10:00 All-Levels Tai Chi
Starting Thursday, January 4th, 2018

This class is open to all levels of Tai Chi, from beginner to advanced, to practice and learn the motions of the Traditional Yang Style Long Form. There will also be an emphasis on developing proper body structure through standing meditation.

Sundays, 11-12:00 Beginning Tai Chi
Starting Sunday, January 7th, 2018

This class is an introduction to the Traditional Yang Style Long Form, focusing primarily on the motions of the first section. It will emphasize the basics of body mechanics and footwork with occasional explanation of the martial applications of the motions. It also includes some simple qigong to warm up for and end the class.

Sundays, 12:00-1:00 Intermediate Tai Chi
Starting Sunday, January 7th, 2018

This class is a continuation of the Traditional Yang Style Long Form. There will be a focus on the second and third sections, often including a run-through of the entire long form, with occasional explanations of martial applications. This class is most appropriate for students with a background in Tai Chi who feel comfortable with the motions of the first section.


Traditional Yang style tai chi

Tai Chi is a beautiful series of slow-motion movements  practiced for balance, stress relief, and self-defense.  No special clothing or equipment is required; anything loose and comfortable is appropriate for class.

Tai Chi can work wonders in improving one's posture and balance, which are crucial for avoiding injuries as we live and age. The movements are deceptively subtle and complex and can be practiced for a lifetime without exhausting their depth. Tai Chi is also a moving meditation that can produce a joyful sensation of serenity and calm.

I focus on teaching the Yang Family Traditional Long Form, an elegant series of motions practiced in a slow, continuous, and relaxed manner to improve balance, coordination, flexibility, and strength.
