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 class starting in April, we will be starting right back at the beginning of the form. Beginners are always welcome to join this class and if you are a beginner, this is an ideal time to get started. More experienced participants will benefit from the review and we will also continue to explore some of the deeper aspects of the form.

Also, as often as we get the chance, we will run through all three sections of the full form at the end of class. This will give the more experienced participants an opportunity to review the entire form.

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.
