What is Integral Tai Chi?
What are "Experienced Classes"?


These classes are for students who have studied these practices with me for several years and are familiar with the movements of Qigong, Tai Chi Easy and Integral Tai Chi. When a beginning regular class has been continuing together for several sessions (Fall Winter Spring Sessions) they usually request more specialized movements, added forms and time for individualized feedback. These are provided for in the "experienced" classes.

Once you are familiar with Qi Gong and Tai Chi Easy practices, the next step in continued learning is to study Integral Tai Chi which incorporates the basics of Tai Chi Easy and expands the core moves to deepen and strengthen your practice. Integral Tai Chi remains a simplified version of traditional Tai Chi which involves many long forms. The focus of Integral Tai Chi is to provide a strong foundation without the frustration of trying to learn hundreds of moves during years of study. Integral is accessible to all, can be learned easily and yet has profound positive affects on your health, well-being and outlook on life. Top ^
