Tai Chi for Good Health (Yang Style Short Form)

This is the most common form of Tai Chi practiced in the world today.  This form has 24 unique postures that are practiced in a particular sequence.  Beginners and students looking for the health benefits of Tai Chi without delving into the martial practice are usually best suited to this class.  This class teaches basic Tai Chi movement and leads students through learning the 24 posture form.  This class is suitable for all ages and is focused on exercises that will bring about the physical and mental health benefits of Tai Chi practice.  Once learned, the entire form takes approximately 5 minutes to perform from beginning to end.



Classical Yang Style Long Form (Martial Tai Chi)

This class is for students interested in deepening their studies in Taijiquan.  All of the health benefits of the Short Form are also gained in the study of the Long Form.  The Long Form has 37 unique postures, which are performed in a particular sequence.  In addition to the Long Form, students in this class also learn how the postures are applied in martial practice.  Many different partner exercises are included as well as the practice known as "Push Hands".
