Better Balance with Tai Chi for Seniors

After a lifetime of working, we often retire only to find ourselves with aging bodies, stiff joints and poor balance. Tai Chi for seniors helps turn back that clock, teaching us how to move safely, strengthen our legs, soften our sinews, and return us to moving the way we want. Whether you are a senior citizen or recovering from a serious illness/injury, this is the class to take. 

please note that classes are held on the 2nd floor of Asia House and do require being able to climb one flight of stairs

teacher: Karen Brinkman

class times: Most Tues & Thurs 1:00-2:00pm

pre-registration on class calendar required.

cost: $10 at the door

Awakening to the Flow of Qi with Taiji

藏手太極一:Hidden Hand Taiji form I is for those who seek to awaken themselves to the flow of Qi in their bodies, settle the mind into quiet awareness, and tap into the universal flow, or Dao, all around us. A slow moving, meditative way of practicing Taiji, this class is open to all who seek inner peace through gentle movement. This class is about harmony of movement. Hidden Hand Taiji I does not highlight the martial arts aspect of Taiji, as the focus is on centering the self as the first step towards awakening the flow of Qi within us.

teacher: Andrew Nugent-Head

class times: Most Wednesdays, 5:45pm-6:45pm, pre registration on class calendar required. Check class calendar for dates & registration.

cost: $20

Forging the Body with Taiji

藏手太極二:Hidden Hand Taiji form II is a more demanding, body focused practice of Taiji. It assumes practitioners are already in both good health and athletic shape, as movements are faster, stances are deeper, and strength is required. Hidden Hand Taiji II is where we understand the name of the form–the normally unrecognizable martial applications of each move in the form as it is practiced in form I are shown and demonstrated. While not an applications focused class, practitioners should expect occasional partnered practice of techniques to better understand the form itself.

teacher: Andrew Nugent-Head

class times: Most Wednesdays, 7:00pm-8:00pm, pre-registration on class calendar required.

Your Best Introduction to Qigong

All living things have Life Force energy moving through their systems. A lack of Qi, or poor circulation may cause less than optimal health. In this class we learn some traditional forms of movements, explore massage, tapping and sounds as ways of cultivating and stimulating Qi flow. Standing, sitting, and floor exercises will be taught. 

Feeling and experiencing is the learning method. My goal is you learn enough to create your own regular practice. 

teacher: Allen Horowitz

class time: Mondays, 9:30 to 10:30am

cost: $10

Post Heaven Practices from the YSB Tradition

A hallmark of traditional Chinese Daoyin he expression is 苦中樂, meaning that there is a discovery of joy that can only come from the bitter, hard work others shy away from. There is a recognition that beyond the skills we learn are more skills, if we can focus on reaching our full Post Heaven potential, then we are in a better position to touch the Pre Heaven existence within us.

teacher: Andrew Nugent-Head

class time: TBA, currently not scheduled
