This introductory class will explore the rich world of
Tai Chi and qi gong practice through the changing seasons in Lindsey Gardens, the lovely, quiet, public park at the top of N Street in the Avenues. A unique and rewarding approach to learning Tai Chi includes qi gong practices, Feldenkrais, Embodied Life and Bones For Life movement explorations, push hands experiments and and other explorations of the Tai Chi principles.

I look forward to joining you in these explorations.
Class will begin Monday May 19th and will continue on Mondays from 6-7:15 pm for a total of 15 weeks. (no class on June 9th)
