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 spring session starting in April, we will be focusing on the movements from the first section of the solo form. This is a great time to start taking T’ai Chi if you do not have any experience with the art. Each class we will focus on a handful of moves, gradually adding moves through the 8-week class session.

As often as we can, we will also run through all three sections of the form. Over the summer, we will plan on focusing on a variety of concepts within the form. This class will be beneficial to both experienced and non-experienced T’ai Chi players.

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.
