Tai Chi Essentials: This weekly group class focuses on introduction to zhan zhuang (standing stillness practice), some funtamental qigong practices, and the first section of the Yang style long form. These are good entry level classes for many people or good review for experienced practitioners who want to focus on depth of practice.
Tai Chi Continuing: These weekly group classes focus on increasing depth of the practices with more emphasis on zhan zhuang and how it prepares the body and mind for the movement practice, qigong for health and integration, and the complete Yang style long form. Saturday classes also include partner work (push hands) to deepen understanding of the movements in the solo form and to learn to find harmony under pressure.
