TAI CHI FOR HEALTH
This amazing class at BREATHE LIFE TAI CHI is a great way to start or end your day. The focus is on building strong Tai Chi principles through Dr. Lam’s Tai Chi for Health programs. There are fewer forms than the Traditional Tai Chi class since we experience how Tai Chi feels as opposed to memorizing a ton of “moves”. Principles explored include internal “Jing” and “Song”, body structure of alignment and weight transference, and moving in a slow, continuous motion with gentle resistance. Let’s not forget about BREATHE! Yes, we breathe….allot! We love experiencing the greater depth of Tai Chi together. Come join us!!
TRADITIONAL TAI CHI
BREATHE LIFE TAI CHI traditional classes focus on Sun 73 Forms. Many of Dr. Lam’s Tai Chi for Health programs are based off of this set of forms. Sun Style has a higher stance than other forms of Tai Chi, less kicking and punching, all movements have the same tempi, and a very strong Qigong emphasis. Traditional Tai Chi classes are appropriate for beginners through advanced students. There are six segments of Sun Style and the class curriculum rotates through each. This means that you can join any session on week 1 and enjoy the benefits of Tai Chi. Everyone starts at the same place each session.
TAI CHI WEAPONS
Artistic Tai Chi classes are unique only to BREATHE LIFE TAI CHI. Practitioners were wanting to continue their learning of Tai Chi principles, so we developed Artistic Tai Chi. First, we have a ton of fun! Each session focuses on an authentic Asian weapon. BREATHE LIFE TAI CHI weapons include Broad Sword, Long Sword, Short Stick and Nunchucks to develop not only heightened focus, but also the skill of extending the intrinsic energy through the hands and arms. Beginners definitely welcome to join this fluid, but energizing class. Did I mention we have fun!?
This is an excellent way to get started or continue your study of Tai Chi. BREATHE LIFE TAI CHI understands that life can be hectic and it’s impossible sometimes to schedule class time. Or maybe group classes aren’t for you. Flexible private lesson times are available throughout the week Monday-Friday and we focus on your goals as an individual. We will assess together what it is you wish to accomplish and put together a schedule that fits your needs. Give me a call or message me and let’s talk about it!
