Tai Chi Classes

Tai Chi Classes
Begin your Tai Chi training by learning the basic stance of Still Mountain. Visualize earth's energy rising up to the top of Still Mountain's peak and dashing down magnificent waterfalls to serene mountain lakes.

Basic Tai Chi Classes emphasize stretching and stances that are taught in the first lesson. This is followed by step by step instruction tailored to fit an individual's ability. Classes are designed to improve balance, core strength, and flexibility.

Part the Wild Horse's Mane

Visualizations like "Circle the Moon" or "Part the Wild Horse's Mane" enhance the learner's understanding of this ancient Chinese gentle stretching exercise.


Learn the animal forms of Tai Chi, including crane, monkey, snake and horse. Advance to the next level and experience the Black Tiger Set, and then move on to develop the movements of the Red Dragon.


Practice the art of "Rice Paper Walking" or "White Snake Flicks Tongue" to improve balance and coordination.
