Online Classes

Since the in person T’ai Chi classes have been canceled, I have finally decided to offer a handful of online video classes via Zoom. For the most part, these classes will be shorter and more simplified to accommodate the video environment.

For the first week we will hold just a few classes. I will use this as a sort of test week. If all goes well, I will be adding in other classes. Using this format offers a lot of flexibility.and creativity.

Many of the classes that are run on the same day will use the same link to join the class. That way, if you are interested in taking consecutive classes, you can just stay online between classes. No need to sign off and then join a new class. (This is also an excellent time to be social and chat with the group.)

For those of you who have not used Zoom before, you will join the class shortly before it starts. You can think of it like a drop-in class. I will typically start the Zoom meeting about 15 minutes before the class starts. (Just so you know, the join buttin is actually joining the class – it is not registering for the class.) The very first time you use Zoom, you may want to join a few extra minutes early – maybe 5 minutes before the class.

Also, please note that each time you join a class, you will be taken to a page where you need to complete a waiver form before you are actually able to join the class.

Please Consider Paying for Classes.

List of Classes

“Join” the class shortly before start time.

Please join classes no earlier than 10 minutes before the start of that class.

I will typically start the meeting about 15 minutes early. But if you join any earlier, you will either end up joining the earlier class or you will end up in an empty “room”.

Monday Classes

Thursday Classes

Please note that these classes may be discontinued at any time as in-person classes resume. There is no specific timeline set up for this, so resumption of classes, and the discontinuation of online classe may occur with very short notice.

Everything Below this is Hidden

11:30 – 12:00 AM Equipment Practice

Each week we will use various common items found around the house or yard to deepen and intensify the T’ai Chi experience. Everyday items such as stones / weights, small rocks / coins, pillows, blankets, tennis balls, leaves, etc. can alter how we experience T’ai Chi movements, heightening our awareness and teaching us about the core essence of T’ai Chi.
