We believe the Wu Style of tai chi is the best for promoting health in the West.

Its high stances protect your knees, and its emphasis on developing “yin energy” leads to deep nervous system relaxation.

You first learn our Wu Style Mini Form and "tai chi essentials" - fun exercises through which you learn movement patterns and principles essential to the practice of tai chi. Through this form and these exercises you begin to gain many of the benefits of tai chi practice.

Then you continue to learn the Short Form, of which the Mini Form is the first part. Practice of the Short Form 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.

We offer the following courses in this subject. Please click on any that interests you:

 

Introduction to Wu Style Tai Chi

Tai chi single whip posture

We will give you a thorough introduction to this wonderful art and its core principles, at a relaxed pace and in an accessible, fun, and easy-to-learn manner.

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.
