Tai Chi Easy, Level 1

Saturday, July 1110:00—11:30 AMOnline

Tai Chi practitioner and coach, Aisling O'Shea, will guide you through this beautiful and low impact form of martial art and meditation. No equipment necessary; just wear comfortable clothing!

This class will provide an overview of the basic concepts of Tai Chi and Qi Gong, and students will be
guided through a step-by-step instruction in the 5 Tai Chi Easy movements. After learning the upper body movements, the instructor will lead participants in a slow meditative walk, incorporating the upper body movements in a flowing sequence of the 5 Tai Chi Easy movements: 1) Harmonizing Yin and Yang; 2) Brush Knee, Send Chi; 3) Cutting a Path to Clarity; 4) Watching Clouds Pass; and 5) Gathering Chi from Earth and Heaven. These Tai Chi movements may be adapted for standing or sitting. 

During the second part of the Level 1 class, participants will be guided through a series of Qi Gong
movement and breath practices known as “Eight Organ Harmony” and “The Six Qi Method”. There will be an opportunity for a recap and practice of the 5-movement Tai Chi Easy sequence, and time for questions from participants before the end of class.
