Classes typically follow this general schedule: we warm up with a series of qigong movements, often from the Eight pieces of Brocade, but we pull movements from all sorts of qigong practices.
We then walk through our tai chi form together (either our short form or long Yang-style form or both), and then focus on individual tai chi development: form and postures, principles and theories, breath and of course answering questions. We close with some gentle qigong exercises.
Our classes are highly participatory, so attend with questions, observations, critiques or issues.
We look at Tai Chi and Qigong in a non-secular way which means that it's up to you to decide if the ancient knowledge applies to you or not. Having said that, we draw teaching inspiration from:
Our own experiences in learning and teaching with our teacher(s), the various forms
The Dao De Jing
Tai Chi Classics and other Taiji/Qigong-related texts from various authors
Our custom-derived teaching methodologies
