Join us for this weekend of immersion in the Traditional Yang Family long form of Taijiquan. You’ll be able to:

Refine your alignment.
Understand the postures’ possible martial applications to enhance the clarity of your body alignment and energy focus.
Understand the biomechanics of the movements.
Expand the distinctions of weight-shift, energies of the palms and feet, opening/closing of the kua.
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.
