This is our Introductory Tai Chi class that is open to all students. Small classes allow for individualized instruction so that you may begin at any time without worry of “being behind” other students. Our individualized teaching method allows each student to concentrate on the particular aspects that are important to them (balance, breathing, relaxation and stress reduction, meditation, philosophy, conditioning, self defense, etc.) You will establish a solid foundation in Tai Chi principles to improve your physical and mental health, making Tai Chi an ideal life long practice. Each class begins with a brief meditation to help you focus internally, begin the process of releasing stress, and become more aware of your movements. Thereafter, we continue with our First Form (Wu Chi Tai Chi Form), a simple 10 movement sequence created by Master Domingo Colon to introduce you to the flowing feel of Tai Chi movements and to begin the study of the fundamental principles and concepts of Tai Chi. Then you will continue with your individualized instruction where we will answer your questions and offer detailed instruction in how to perform Tai Chi to obtain the maximum benefits. The class concludes with a brief meditation to help you carry the feeling of relaxation and peace into your everyday life. Because of our individualized instruction method, you may switch class days and times if necessary (as long as you attend a “Fundamental Forms” class). This gives you flexibility in scheduling your classes. For those interested, Private Lessons with master Colon are also available. Our current Schedule of Fundamental Forms class is: Wednesday Noon and 6:30 pm Thursday Noon Friday 11 am Saturday 8:45 am We also offer several more advanced classes for experienced Tai Chi students, please visit our website: www.taichischool.com (http://www.taichischool.com/) for complete details. I encourage you to come in and take a Free Trial Class to begin your Tai Chi experience. (Available any Saturday 10:30 am with prior reservation required.) We offer a Special Rate for Meetup members of $20 per class and you may pay as you go. Feel free to email me if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting you all soon!
Join us for this fun class (sometimes known as "Push Hands". You will enjoy working with partners to learn how to apply Tai Chi principles to daily life. Beginners as well as experienced Tai Chi players welcome.
New Group Tai Chi Class “Be Like Water” Begins Saturday February 9,[masked]:45 am This work-out class makes Tai Chi movements easy to follow and remember. “Be Like Water” strikes a great balance between relaxation, technique, and flow. Students learn the ancient movements of Tai Chi from a Certified Instructor, who will motivate you, answer your questions, keep you engaged, and moving. Experience the ancient, healing movements of Tai Chi in a supportive Group Class, open to all levels. Learn to meditate, and then truly flow. As the immortal Bruce Lee said, “Be like water making its way through cracks.….. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Be water, my friend.” He meant that you’ve got to be flexible in mind and body, to adapt to changing circumstances. It’s about changing up the way you practice, and being open to new ways of doing things to achieve better results. Here at the Tai Chi School of Westchester, we have always offered an engaging class experience, in the form of semi-individualized instruction, where each student in class may be learning a different movement. Now we are pleased to offer you an alternative, in the form of a group fitness class, where everyone performs the movements together, for a fun and communal experience. Come join us for this new experience at the Tai Chi School of Westchester, to begin getting stronger and more balanced in the New Year.
