Open to graduates of Fundamentals I or with permission of the instructor.

This 10-class series continues and deepens the work begun in Fundamentals I, with additional Qigong study and further exploration of the dynamics of the Tai Chi Diagram, the "Master Key." We will review the Wu/Hao 16-movement form, and learn additional movements from the 108-movement "Long Form."

Tai Chi is a chinese martial art and system of meditative movement used worldwide for fitness, stress reduction, balance, and well-being. Principles of motion based on Yin and Yang, body mechanices, proper alignment, knee safety, and whole body coorination serve as an introduction to further study.

The healing properties of Tai Chi derive from Qigong: the cultivation and movement of Qi, or life energy, to induce physical, emotional, mental and spiritual equilibrium.

When you have completed this class, you may join our ongoing Wu/Hao-style Tai Chi class, practicing the 108-movement "Long Form."
