Introduction to Wu Style Tai Chi
Try Your First Class Free
September 3 to 16
Tai Chi's basic practice consists of a gentle flowing progression of movements known as a form.
Tai Chi was originally developed as a martial art rooted in qigong, i.e. energy development exercises.
We teach its qigong and moving meditation aspects.
We teach the Wu Style of tai chi because it is excellent for promoting health.
Its high stances protect your knees, and its emphasis on developing "yin energy" leads to deep nervous system relaxation.
Practice of the Wu Style promotes better balance and whole body health, and is particularly helpful for lower back conditions.
You can use it to calm and steady your mind and deeply relax your body.
Introduction to Wu Style Tai Chi
We will give you a thorough introduction to this wonderful art, and its core principles, at a relaxed pace and in an accessible and easy to learn form.
Over two 7-week sessions (Parts 1 & 2) you will learn foundation tai chi movement skills, relaxation principles, healthy posture, and the Wu Style Mini Form.
The Mini Form consists of the first 7 moves of the Wu Style Short Form. It contains many important tai chi movements for health and meditation, and takes only a few minutes to perform.
