Introduction to Tai Chi
with Michel Czehatowski
This is an opportunity to learn China's most revered exercise for health and longevity!
In this introductory class you will learn the basic principles of Tai Chi's slow moving and gentle exercises which are known for promoting relaxation, improving body awareness, balance, and flexibility, and reducing stress. The movements are taught one at a time and explained in detail. Age or physical condition is not a factor in learning Tai Chi and no special clothing, shoes, or equipment are needed.This class introduces the Yang Style Long Form. Students will learn the basic principles and movements of Tai Chi. This class meets twice a week. Each class introduces new movements.
At the end of eight (8) weeks (16 classes) you will have learned a sequence of movements that takes approximately 5-8 minutes to complete. Please come to class wearing clothes you are comfortable moving in. The one-hour class emphasizes the health and meditative aspects of the art. Learning Section 1 is comparable to learning a “short” form of Tai Chi and will be very beneficial to your health if you practice this daily for the rest of your life.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Students are welcome to repeat this class as many time as they would like.
