Tai Chi Chuan A traditional Chinese system for health and healing.
In today's world, since most students have either time constraints or a current infirmity, it is important that we respect these different conditions and still find a way to teach each student how to heal themselves, and still have fun doing so. Even in a group class, the study of Tai Chi is a very individualized journey. Classical Tai Chi has basic characteristics to learn and to follow. Some take a longer time to assimilate, so my classes begin at the beginning by teaching flexibility exercises and forms that will offer every student opportunities for good health and relaxation. A basic Tai Chi form takes only two to five minutes to perform, but can still be done year after year with a practitioner's improved skill level. I also incorporate into my teaching Tai Chi Qigong forms for enhanced stress reduction and all around improved wellness.
