“Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese exercise that combines fluid movement with a calm and alert mental state. Practicing Tai Chi can helps us enjoy life on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level.”
Tai Chi Fundamentals is designed to introduce the student to the experience of Chi Gong and Tai Chi. The course is based on the Tai Chi Fundamentals Form developed by Tai Chi Instructors in Madison. This course will cover Chi Gong exercises, basic Tai Chi Movements and the entire Tai Chi form. There will be an emphasis on learning the form and on experiencing the joy of calm fluid movement combined with simple breath awareness.
In my class I intend to give students the opportunity to experience Tai Chi and incorporate it into their lives on the level that fits them. I want to show them how Tai Chi can add energy, enjoyment and peace to their lives.
Foundations classes are a gentle progressive series that explore the fundamentals of Tai Chi and Chi Gong movements, simple breath awareness, relaxation, and concentration. These classes will explore basic Chi Gong and Tai Chi Movements and will help students experience and learn the Tai Chi Form. The classes are designed to both help you learn Tai Chi movements patterns and provide a meditative environment using breath awareness and calm fluid movement. These class series are applicable for beginners and are especially well-suited to maturing adults who are interested in maintaining strength, stamina and flexibility plus improving improving balance in classes with a strong focus on protecting joints.
