Tai Chi Chuan: Beginners Course (8 Mondays)
This 8-weeks package of Shaolin Tai Chi is an ideal start for people who have never done Tai Chi before and like to explore it for two months. The course is scheduled twice a year (spring and autumn). Upon completion, the students may join our weekly beginners/intermediate class (where they still receive some separate teaching to help them along). This class is Mondays, 12.45-1.45pm (same Studio).
The 8-weeks intro course gives you some solid basics and understanding - both about the principles of Tai Chi Chuan, and the application of these principles in your everyday life.
If you stop after the 8 weeks, you will still have benefited, as you will have learned to use some of the basic moves to relax and balance yourself, or to build up your energies and create more vitality. Making Tai Chi useful for your everyday life is the core purpose of our teaching (see also: Benefits).
