I have three weekly classes in Qigong and Taiji that run year round. The classes are ongoing. You can start Qigong anytime, and
Taijiquan (Tai Chi Chuan) on the first class of the month. The Qigong classes cycle through a half dozen or so basic practices that I teach, so depending when you start you may come in "in the middle of something". This is fine
with me, and though it may seem a little confusing at first, you will quickly catch on. There are always beginners and more seasoned students in all my classes. The class size is small and everyone gets personal attention. For
location and cost details, go to the Class Page.
Monday Evening Qigong, 56 PM
In the summer, we always spend more time with movement forms. In terms of Chinese medicine, this is working a more yin element-
our body, using a more yang method- movement. Yang qi is strong in the environment with long, hot and sunny days and it is a good time to practice and take in that yang.
Wednesday Morning Qigong, 910 AM
Wednesday morning class will be much the same as the above description for Monday. Though covering most of the same material, this class is always a bit more oriented towards personal qi development. Thus we spend less time on the external forms and more on internal qi strengthening and sensitivity. We also consider and define our practice within the parameters of classical Chinese thought. This summer we will continue to work on the unified body and movement. We also practice "listening" with our hands to build tangible and reliable qi. Bagua medicine required it's practitioners to have and maintain strong and sensitive qi through daily practice of it's 8 functions. This class is well suited to bodyworkers and therapists of all sorts and open to anyone with an interest in learning about and experiencing qi from a classical perspective.
Saturday Morning Yang-Style Taijiquan, 89:30 AM
This is an ongoing class in the Yang-style long form, also called the slow set. I teach a traditional form that comes through the
Dong (Tung) family lineage, though to be honest, my form has been influenced by years of training on my own and exposure to Bagua, so I am not a true representative of these families styles. I do seek to adhere to their
foundation and principles.
