Description

For people who have practised Tai Chi previously or for beginners who feel they would pick it up quite quickly. The course will cover the basics but won’t start right at the very beginning so some basic understanding would be an advantage. Participants are encouraged to practise between classes. Wear comfortable clothing and flat shoes.

What can students expect?

At this level it is expected that learners will have done some Tai Chi or similar type of body work. In some circumstances, learners can join with no experience if they are physically well, learn quickly, and are prepared to practice in-between classes. Learners can expect a friendly class, flexible to their needs. The warming up exercises are very gentle. Other exercises are taught that explore underlying principles of Tai Chi: posture, balance, relaxation, mind focus, body awareness, coordination. This class is focusing on Chen style Lao Jia form.

Late starters allowed?

Yes

Previous experience required?

No

What is the progression route?

Learners can continue in this class - learning more movements of the form and practising with greater depth of understanding and a higher level of skill.

Are there any extra costs?

No

Are there any set books?

No, we use YouTube clips and handouts.

Work set between sessions?

Learners are encouraged to practise between classes to get the most benefit from their learning.

What should students bring?

Teaching method/style?

Friendly relaxed class with opportunities to chat to other participants and ask questions. Very interactive. Exercises mostly taught by demonstration and explanation, then following the tutor. Some small group work, work in pairs and eventually solo work. Correction by the tutor.
