Have an opportunity for a video analysis of your form.
Expand your understanding and application of the 10 principles of Taijiquan to your individual practice.

Schedule:

Saturday we’ll study and play the first 51 movements and enjoy a few refreshing intermissions of Qigong and demonstrations of Taiji sword form and push hands. An extended lunch from 12:30 to 2:00 will allow time for rest, food and practice.
Sunday we’ll continue with the 52 movements of the second half of the long form. We’ll be exploring applications and two person play in half hour sessions in the morning and afternoon. Lunch from 12:30 to 2:00.
