T’ai Chi Ch’üan
The soft flow and harmonious movements of the T’ai Chi Ch’üan encourage balance, longevity and peace of mind and gradually describe an allegorical journey through life. Students learn the long form from the Yang style.
Most T’ai Chi methods have an emphasis on the fighting aspect derived from martial arts. However, in this class, we will instead focus on safe, fluid movement that brings ease and peace to our daily lives. The 108 movements of the Form are learned over five different levels: Beginners 1 & 2, Intermediate 1, 2, & 3, which will take about a year of study or more. Then, students move to an Ongoing Advanced class for as many years as they wish, as we encourage the principle of always being curious about learning.
