Yang Style Short Form (Tai Chi for Health)
The healing benefits of Tai Chi have been reputed for hundreds of years by people practicing this ancient martial exercise. Practitioners have described curing themselves of many different ailments and improving their overall health. Tai Chi for Health is a very gentle and relaxing class designed to reduce stress and improve balance and concentration, while promoting a feeling of well-being.
Students learn the Yang style Short Form (24 form) also known as the simplified form, as well as the complimentary healing Qigong (Chi Kung) exercises. This class is excellent for people trying Tai Chi for the first time.
Classical Yang Style Long Form
The Tai Chi Long Form is a more in depth study of Tai Chi. Having the same healing benefits of Short Form, this class introduces the theory of this amazing and soft martial art. Although somewhat more of a physical challenge than the Short Form, this form can be practiced by people of all ages. The complimentary health and martial Qigong is also practiced in this class.
Wudang Tai Chi
Great Bay Tai Chi now offers Wudang Tai Chi. This style is a six-hundred-year-old Temple Style that incorporates the three internal styles of Tai Chi, two of which are Xing Yi and Bagua. Wudang Tai Chi will be taught to a limited number of students by LuAnne Pigeon who has been training in China with Master Shan. Master Shan will oversee the Wudang program.
Tai Chi Push Hands
This class is a good complement to the Long Form class. The student explores a deeper understanding of the movements of the Long Form by practicing the applications of the form with a partner. Students also develop a better understanding of energy while communicating through sensitivity exercises. With alignment, Qigong, and centering, the students learn Tai Chi as a martial art. (Tai Chi Chuan).
Shaolin & Tai Chi – Qin Na (Chin Na)
Qin Na literally means to seize and control. This practice includes locking the joints, cavity strikes, sealing the breath, sealing the vein, and takedowns. It is one of the four fighting strategies of all Chinese martial arts. The other strategies include punching, kicking, and wrestling. Qin Na is the root of the Japanese martial arts of Jujitsu and Aikido. It is a strong complement to any martial style as well as an effective self-defense tool.
Tai Chi Fan
David Bodoh teaches the Flowing Water Tai Chi Fan Form and Chinese Fan Boxing, as well as other related fan skills.
