Dear friends of Qigong and Tai Chi,


NEWS

 

Happy Fall everybody!

                  Sugar Maple Tree in Fall

 

As many of you know, I have been offering a lot of classes with prerequisites for more advanced folks in recent months . . .

 

So I wanted to alert everyone . . .

 

I will be offering an Intro course in Tai Chi 1 (no background necessary) for beginners starting Monday Nov 27 (MWF schedule) at 8pm Eastern.  

 

To those interested in the Qigong and Meditation Line, I am restarting that sequence for beginners later on, next year Mar 2024.  These courses are in double-weekend format.

 

Many of the Tai Chi and Qigong courses have prerequisites, as the material can go very deep, so if you have been thinking about dipping your toe in, and giving it a try . . .

 

Now is the time.  :)

 

Often the "no prereq" classes--or entry-level classes--only get offered once per year.  So if you miss it, you have to wait a year at earliest.

 

So if you are interested in giving Tai Chi or Qigong/Meditation a try, I invite you to set aside some time for yourself to join a class!

 

These classes are done ONLINE, so you can join from the comfort of your home, without the need to travel anywhere.

 

All you need is the desire to reduce stress, improve your health, and take a short break from the never-ending stream of responsibilities.

 

I would love to see you join!

 

 

INTRO TAI CHI QIGONG 1 ONLINE -- Starts Monday, Nov 27 at 8pm Eastern on MWF schedule  (OPEN enrollment)

Tai Chi 1 form

                       Tai Chi 1 form

 

This six-week program in Intro Tai Chi 1 gives you the foundation in Tai Chi, as well as enables you to learn the fundamental Tai Chi 1 form. 

 

There are many other instructors that teach the Tai Chi 1 form, so I'm not unique.


But my focus is on giving a well-rounded instruction on how to do Tai Chi in a rooted way, so you move with a strong connection to the ground.


If you move in a grounded and rooted way, it 
amplifies the healing potential from the earth energy, it stabilizes your emotions and nervous system.

 

Also, quite honestly for those who are interested in martial arts, rooted Tai Chi creates a stable structure in movement.

 

While my focus is on the healing aspect of doing the form, I will also demo the self-defense applications that are hidden in the form, for those that have that interest.

 

The teaching will also be tied into the Tai Chi classics, which is a collection of old texts that explain how to do Tai Chi "in a better way".

 

The main goal of this class is to be able to learn the Tai Chi 1 form, at least at a beginner level, and have a solid practice that will serve you going forward. 

 

You don't need to have any Tai Chi background to join this program.

 

Depending on enrollment in this program, there may be follow-up courses offered in REFINE Tai Chi 1 (refinement of the form, as preparation for intermediate & higher-level skills) and/or Tai Chi 2-3.

 

Each week MWF we will continue ongoing work with the Tai Chi 1 form as we meet for class. 

 

The classes themselves are NOT recorded. 

 

This is to ensure privacy of students, for students to be able to feel they can practice Tai Chi without being recorded, and to be able to ask relevant questions without concern about recordings, etc. 

 

That said, for extra support, each week you will be provided with a practice recording (streaming) going over the instruction we did in the week, that is free from q/a interruptions and side discussions etc.   

 

That way you can have a guided practice that you can follow along, outside of class.

 

So you will get six comprehensive instructional practice sessions to supplement your class, if you wish to have a reference in practicing outside the classroom.

 

You will have access to these practice sessions (until Feb 28, 2024) to enable you to continue practicing outside of class.
