Old Frame Tai Chi  


What is Tai Chi? Many define it as “meditation in motion,” and Harvard Medical School defines it as “medication in motion,” claiming that “this gentle form of exercise can help maintain strength, flexibility, and balance, and could be the perfect activity for the rest of your life.” The School further states that “there is growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems. And you can get started even if you aren’t in top shape or the best of health” ( staying-healthy/the-health-benefits-of-tai-chi).


This virtual course of live and synchronous instructions on Zoom teaches multiple sets of Tai Chi forms from the basic to the advanced, from the Old to the New Frame, of about a few hundred postures of Chen, Yang, Sun, and Wu styles, with the emphasis on Chen.



Adults of all ages are welcome.
