Tai Chi Form Improvement

This course is designed for those who have learned the Form and want to become better at doing it. We usually go through the entire Form in depth, drilling on many basics and, too, subtleties of internal energy, mind sets and mental effects, rooting, breathing, body alignment, weight transfer, upper-lower body relations and particular finger-foot relations.

 

Thursdays

  •  Oct 4 – Dec 13 (10 weeks), 12:30 – 1:30 p.m., no meeting Nov 22
  •  Enumclaw environs, contact Ron for directions, 360 825-3413

At this Thursday’s occasion of Form Improvement, there may also be some Push Hands taught.  If so, as a minor supplement.
