Lesson Details

Tai Chi Chuan

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese practice and is sometimes referred to as a moving meditation. It can help with high blood pressure, and is a great way to practice relaxation techniques. Tai Chi helps improve balance and flexibility.

I have been teaching Tai Chi in the Taoist Tai Chi style since 2009, certified in set leading and beginner instruction.

I can teach you two Taoist sequences - the 18 movement as well as the 108 moves. I usually recommend new students learn the 18 moves first, get this memorized and then move into the 108 moves.

I have had the pleasure of taking Qigong classes with Cindy for over a year. She is an excellent instructor. She explains the benefits of the particular moves being practiced, as well as explaining how to do all of the moves. To me, the time with Cindy in Qigong is calming, uplifting, and spiritual.
