About The Class
The Monday class is an “Advanced Class” geared more towards those who have learned all 3 sections of the form, or for those who feel comfortable following along.

In this class we will focus on practicing and refining the movements from all three sections of the form. We may at times also delve more deeply into some of the concepts of T’ai Chi and how these concepts apply to the form and how they can change the way we experience our T’ai Chi.

Please note that this class is open to anyone, however if you are looking to learn the sequence of the form you may find that you are better suited to the Tuesday or Thursday class. (Thursday class will return in January.) If you have any questions about which section is the best fit, feel free to contact me.

About The Class
In the T’ai Chi for Better Balance 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.
