These classes are suitable for complete beginners and will include a brief introduction to the Shen Long school of Traditional Tai Chi and how it may differ from other schools. Emphasis will be on correct posture, breathing, balance and, most importantly, relaxation. Students will learn basic Tai Chi exercises including the Five Animal Play (五禽戲）and study the Traditional Taoist Tai Chi 37 Forms as handed down by Grandmaster Cheng Man Ching in his final years. The course is divided into two twelve-week terms, each lesson reviewing the previous week’s content and adding step-by-step each following lesson.
