About The Class
This is a larger class and is made up of a core group of more experienced students with newer students joining the class and seamlessly becoming part of the community. The class members are friendly and warm and are wonderful at making the newer students feel welcome. Both residents and non-residents are welcome to join the class.

For the summer session starting in June, we will be exploring various elements of T’ai Chi including topics such as body alignment, rooting, relaxing, weight shift, as well as some more esoteric topics. Each element can have a deep impact on the way you practice your T’ai Chi. This is also a great time to start taking T’ai Chi if you do not have any experience with the art, as you will be learning and developing good habits right from the start.

Each class we will focus on one or two topics that will benefit those new to T’ai Chi, as well as those with years of experience. As often as we can, we will also run through all three sections of the form at the end of class.

About The Class
In the T’ai Chi for Healthy Living class, we proceed through a series of T’ai Chi movements with the aim of improving our balance. These movements are taken from more traditional styles of T’ai Chi and are modified and simplified. This allows participants to follow along more easily so that we can focus on the aspects of these moves that help with our balance.

While not required, it is helpful to practice these moves between classes. More frequent practice at home will show greater benefits in improving balance.

These classes tend to be smaller to medium sized, allowing us to adapt the focus of the class according to the needs of the participants during any given class. This class tends to be the “lightest” of all the classes offered, with a very strong focus on balance.
