Let's come together, release tension, increase balance and feel completely relaxed with Beginners Tai Chi in the Enchanting Garden.
Tai Chi is a graceful series of ancient Chinese meditative movements that help maintain physical health, well-being and spiritual essence. Anyone can learn Tai Chi – any age, all levels of fitness. Come join us in this beautiful practice, and let's celebrate your health!
Tai Chi Yang Style 24-Form: This is a 4 week, 1-hr long course. By the end of the course students will have an understanding of the basic principles of Tai Chi, and will either go through a partial of the 24-form or all the way through.
Warm-up exercises: Each class will begin with an easy warm up to get things lightly circulating, followed by grounding and balancing exercises.
Weeks 1-3: Tai Chi Walk: Every lesson will begin with the Tai Chi 'walk'. This is a mindful practice and it is the foundation of the entire Tai Chi form.
Week 4: Class will begin with a warm-up, and move right into the form.
The class will advance only as far as the whole group seems comfortable to go - the instructor, Angie Sierra will take notice of how the class comfortably transitions from one form to the next to make this decision.
Closing: Each class will end with a 2 minute standing meditation.
Please register through Guest Services in advance. Day-of registration will be handled by instructor.
