(Class Description Below)
Introduction to Tai Chi for Beginners
This class introduces the fundamental principles of Tai Chi and their applications to everyday life through breath and proper posture for improved relaxation, balance and grounding with an emphasis on a few core movements from the Tai Chi Long Form Yang Style.
The Tai Chi Middleground
This class is ideal for students with some Tai Chi experience and those returning to their practice after some time. The emphasis is expanding and building the knowledge base in sequences of movements in the Tai Chi Long Form. An evolution emerges bringing awareness to how the fundamental principles of the art translate into everyday emotional and mental well-being.
Deepening the practice of Advanced Tai Chi
The fine-tuning of personal practice through the cultivation of deeper grounding and detailed attention to body alignment brings a greater philosophical understanding of generating both external and internal power, strength, balance and relaxation physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Free Qi Gong Gatherings for Everyone
Qi Gong tapping is like an acupuncture treatment without the needles! I guide everyone who joins us through a basic tapping sequence and in half an hour, you will have given yourself a gentle massage. It is simple, easy, non-strenuous and can be done from standing or sitting. Half an hour…that’s it.
Boost your spirits, your energy and your immune system, all in 30 minutes! If you or anyone you know could use some nourishing in any of these ways, come join us online on Mondays and Thursdays or pass on the word.
We reconvene on Sept 21st.
