Spring 1&2 Schedule April – June

Announcements

There are two, possibly three, changes to the schedule

  • The Monday Evening class will offer the Yang Style 54 posture sword form rather than the cane form.
  • The Wednesday morning class will be an Intermediate 24 class rather than a Beginning 24 class and will focus on refining skills rather than introducing students to Tai Chi. However, students who are enrolled in a Beginning 24 class are welcome to observe and participate in the Intermediate 24 class.
  • There have been inquiries about a Cha’an (Buddha) Tai Chi class but our most popular class times (M,T,W,Th evenings and Sat. mornings) are all taken. Send an email to bryan@tacomataichi.org if you are interested in a Thursday morning, before work (6:30am-7:30am) Buddha Tai Chi class.

Yang Style 108-Posture Long Form
We offer a beginning course, an intermediate course, and a weekly practice session. The intermediate course assumes the student is familiar with either the fundamental principles of Tai Chi or the sequence of postures in the 108-Posture form. Registering for either class allows you to attend the other for no additional charge. The weekly practice session is open to everyone and focuses on the Long Form but periodically includes practice in Zhuang, Qigong, Sword, Buddha Tai Chi, and a Bagua Zhang form.
