TAI CHI FORM CLASSES

LEARN easy ways to power and circulate your chi, and activate your protective chi

RELAX using tai chi postures and movements from the five phases of chi 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.

Beginner Class: Roots and Branches: Tai Chi and the Five Elements
Tuesdays, March 4 through April 15, 6:50 pm to 7:50 pm (seven weeks)

A course that includes movements and postures that work with qi, the life force that exists in all of us. In each class we will generate qi, circulate and unblock qi, use qi to nourish ourselves, and return the qi to the deepest level. The work condenses the tai chi form into standing postures, walks and shifting movements, which follow the cycle of the five elements of Chinese medicine. The simple movements can be learned easily and have a deep effect on the body, mind and spirit. 

Tuition $85

 

Beginner Class: The Eight Ways of Tai Chi
Tuesdays, April 29 through June 3, 6:50 pm to 7:50 pm (six weeks)

A course to learn and practice tai chi movements with images in order to achieve the benefits of tai chi quickly and deeply. For beginners, this is a wonderful introduction to tai chi. For those with illness or injury, this is an opportunity to recover balance and movement. For tai chi students, this is an opportunity to fine-tune your practice and work more deeply. One focus of this class is using tai chi in your normal daily activities in order to be more conscious of how we move in health. 

Tuition $75

 
Continuing Class: Second Third of the Tai Chi Form
Tuesdays, March 4 through May 20, 7 to 8 pm  (twelve-week course)
 
For those who know the first third of the form and want to learn or review the second third. 
Minimum of 10 students for this class. 
 
Tuition $175
**If we don't meet the minimum, the class will become a "Time in the Art" Class, engaging in deepening and expanding the tai chi that you already know. We will practice and review the form that participants have learned, with a particular theme which will be different each evening. The "Time in the Art" class will be a drop-in class, tuition $15 per session. 
 
**We will offer a beginning tai chi form class in Fall 2014.
