How we teach Tai Chi Chuan

Tai Chi Chuan as Meditation in Movement


Through clear communication the course is a continual cycle of practice, feedback and theory.  Most of the class time is spent on practice.


The last few minutes of each class is spent on Tai Chi Theory/Taoist Philosophy.  It is important to have an understanding of Tai Chi theory in order to get the maximum benefit from the practice. It is also important that the student has a basic understanding of the Philosophy of Tai Chi Chuan so they may integrate the basics into their every day life. 


In our approach to Tai Chi, learning to calm the mind and relax the body is where our training and practice begin. The training day is arranged in such a way that the individual students acquire new skills at their own pace.


 Loose fitting clothing, thin sole light weight shoes are needed for Tai Chi training.


Learning Tai Chi The Essential Postures involves the repetition of the physical movements,     Tai Chi postures as well as developing a relationship with the root nature underlying each posture. Training also includes a variety relaxation techniques.
