FREE PRACTICE SESSIONS
If you know any of the Yang style short form, join us for FREE practice sessions this summer on one Tuesday per month, same location as the classes below, 7 pm for an hour.
TAI CHI FORM CLASSES
LEARN easy ways to power and circulate your qi, and activate your protective qi
RELAX using tai chi postures and movements from the five phases of qi energy (the five elements)
ENJOY a simple daily practice to regain and maintain your health and vitality
Our classes introduce you to basic tai chi principles including correct placement of the feet, alignment of the knees and hips, an upright and relaxed spine, and relaxation of the major joints in the body. It is this relaxation that allows the qi (chi, vital internal energy) to flow freely in your body, bringing a pleasant sense of wellbeing, and pointing you in the direction of good health.
Wear loose, comfortable clothing and shoes/ slippers with flat soles (no sandals or high heels). We will have cotton tai chi shoes for sale at the first class.
