This online class series will introduce the beautiful Yang Style 24 Short Form which is one of the most widely practiced Tai Chi forms around the world as well as the 8-Brocade Qigong Set (also known as the 8 Pieces of Brocade or 8 Jewels) and Warm-up/Stretching Exercises.
The Yang style is characterized by evenly paced, soft flowing movements which are almost 'zen-like' distilled in their postures and transitions - while also offering a myriad of delicate intricacies within the execution of each move, transition or stance. The gentle physical requirements of Yang style Tai Chi make it suitable to a wide audience in regards to physical requirements as well as age range.
The 8-Brocade Qigong Set is one of the most commonly practiced forms of Qigong around the world. Qigong is a centuries-old Chinese health/exercise regimen that tries to harmonizes body, mind and spirit and cultivates, enhances, and guides vital internal energies to achieve health, vitality, and spiritual awareness.
- Wednesdays, 6-7pm (online pre-registration required)
There is a $10 fee for your initial trial class (please see more under 'Online Payment). If after the initial trial class you decide to continue attending classes the remainder of January would be pro-rated based on the monthly tuition rate. From February going forward the regular monthly fixed tuition rate of $100 would apply. The group class would be on-going once a week in the same time slot.
The initial trial class starts from the very beginning with Tai Chi foundation work:
- Tai Chi Walk
- Partition the Wild Horse's Mane
- Brush Knee
Once students are sufficiently familiar with the foundation work, subsequent classes then would continue on to actual individual form sequences leading to learning the complete Yang Style 24 Form. As a guide: learning the complete Yang Style 24 Form takes most groups around 6-8 months. The 8-Brocade Qigong Set will also be performed at the beginning of each class as a 15-minute warm-up set.
