The basic principle of Tai Chi is to cultivate what the Chinese allude to as the 3 treasures: mind, body and spirit. The practice includes a series of exercises called Silk Reeling (slow, repetitive, meditative movements) followed by form practice. In this class a basic beginner’s form will be taught. Learn to focus the mind while working on the principles of posture and motion. Benefits include balance, strength and flexibility and a sense of well-being.
INSTRUCTOR: Alan Bandes has been practicing Tai Chi for over 40 years and has taught for 8 years. His approach is to work with each student to achieve success within their unique capabilities.
