with Art Baner!

This class is for absolutely anyone!

Do You Want To: 

  • Improve your balance, core strength, and coordination?
  • Release stress and enhance your sense of well-being?
  • Deepen your personal focus and awareness?

You can achieve this, and much more, through the practice of Tai Chi Chuan. Join us as we explore this extraordinary art of harmonious, effective movement.

In this class we will explore and practice basic breathing and warm-up exercises, Tai Chi walking qigong, and the popular 5-Section Tai Chi Short Form. This form is easy to learn, can be practiced in a fairly small space and takes less  time to perform than the traditional long form. The class is open to beginning and experienced students and will be supported with additional online video and other materials.
