Types of Classes

Beginner Classes

The best place to start is at the beginning!
So new participants will normally sign up for a beginner class, where they will be introduced to the 108 movements of the Tai Chi set.

These classes are once or twice per week and will total 1.5 or 2 hours per week. Most locations offer a variety of class times so that there are opportunities for people to be able to fit a class into their personal schedule.

In addition to your own beginner class, you are welcome to join other beginner classes for extra practice.

It generally takes 3 or 4 months to be introduced to the 108 movements of the Tai Chi set, after which, participants join a continuing class.

There is no pressure to master the movements in three months! At the beginning, the main goal is to start to gently exercise and to relax. We try to keep the atmosphere light and enjoyable, so you can feel comfortable progressing at your own pace.
