In this introductory class, the student will be learning the 8-posture Yang style Tai Chi form. This is the first set that is typically presented to beginning students that is the easiest to learn, as opposed to learning the traditional sets where a person is actually memorizing a particular sequence. The postures, instead, are taught with the idea of practicing 8 postures in a repetitive way and repeating them on left and right sides
In this class, beginning and continuing students learn foundational Qigong exercises, meditations, and theories. These help students begin energy cultivation. This series is divided into two parts, Section A and Section B. After the initial preparation, the two sections each feature distinct routines with completely different practices. Section A introduces an internal strength-building healing set.
This class introduces students to the practice of the I Ching for self-cultivation. The I Ching system was created by the ancients from their careful observations of nature. We “moderns” can use the sixty-four hexagrams found in the I Ching as a predictive tool to enhance our lives and reconcile our spiritual and physical selves.
