Dear friends of Qigong and Tai Chi,


NEWS

 

With the start of the new year, we have fresh eyes and fresh hope for what might unfold . . .

 

I invite everyone in the new year to recommit to your Tai Chi and/or Qigong practice.

 

Doing so, is a way to increase your health, your vitality, and your joy in spirit.

If you don't yet have an at-home practice, or if you simply would like some guidance in developing a qigong or Tai Chi habit--as well as possibly learning something new--there are a variety of offerings this year for you.

 

In particular, starting this upcoming Monday January 15, I have a REFINE Tai Chi 1 course coming up.

 

Also, for those interested in qigong, the foundation course to the Qigong Meditation Basics line, Qigong Meditation Basics 1, will be starting up in March . . .

 

Details below! . . .

 

 

REFINE TAI CHI QIGONG 1 ONLINE -- Starts Monday, Jan 15, 2024 at 8pm Eastern on MWF schedule  (OPEN enrollment)

REFINE TAI CHI QIGONG 1 program ONLINE:  MWF for 6 weeks, Starts Jan 15 at 8pm Eastern (OPEN enrollment)

 

This six-week program in REFINE Tai Chi 1 is designed for people who already learned the Tai Chi 1 form previously. 

 

These could be individuals who had my INTRO Tai Chi 1 course in December (finishing up just now) or people who independently know the Tai Chi 1 form from learning it elsewhere. 

 

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--not to learn the form--but to correct and refine the form as per the principles I described above, and to prepare one to start learning the intermediate level skills that go beyond basic mechanics instruction.

 

PREREQUISITE:
INTRO Tai Chi Qigong 1 program  OR  
Ability to do Tai Chi 1 form beginning to end AND willingness to change form to style as directed by Steven

 

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--at whatever skill level they are at--without being recorded, and to be able to ask relevant questions without concern about recordings, etc. 

 

That said, for extra support, you will be provided with some practice recordings (streaming) going over INTRO Tai Chi 1 instruction we did in the INTRO course, 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, to support your personalized in-class refinement.

 

You will have access to these practice sessions (until April 15, 2024) to enable you to continue practicing outside of class.

 

Note:  There is also a preliminary intention to offer a restricted enrollment class after this course for folks who want to start learning the intermediate level material (2nd REFINE + Intermediate Tai Chi 1).

Only those enrolled in this REFINE Tai Chi 1 above will be given an invite to enroll in this later restricted class.  Such an offering is contingent on enrollment numbers in the REFINE Tai Chi 1 course.

These ONLINE courses are a wonderful way to dive deeply into qigong, from the comfort of your own home while many either can not or do not wish to travel.  For those who could not attend live classes in the past, now is your chance! 

I warmly invite you to join me in these ONLINE workshops where we get to explore some life-changing methods that restore vibrancy and joy to a person's life.  The qigong and meditative methods create a warm happy feeling in the body and spirit.


If anybody has any questions, feel free to contact me directly at my email below.
I'd love to hear from you.

Warm wishes and smiling qi,
