Introduction to Tai Chi

Tai Chi 8 Postures:
This is a great way to start Tai Chi. Each week I will focus on one of the 8 sequential postures. Each posture is easy to learn and can form the basis for more advanced study.
I will also teach the 8 Pieces of Brocade, a classic set of qi gong postures.
Each class will also include stretching and strengthening exercises.
Tai Chi helps with your balance and concentration and is often considered a moving meditation.
Classes are suggested donation of $5 per class welcome.
Bare feet or clean indoor shoes are suitable.
