We have a Taijiquan (Tai Chi) program for everyone. Come practice with us and feel welcome!

Since Taijiquan (Tai Chi) is a principles-based art, the underlying principle is always the same, what changes is the complexity of its application. In an ongoing program, a class is usually divided in three parts:

first third: Standing Meditation
second third: Silk Reeling Qigong
last third: Forms

Teaching is the same for everyone for the first two thirds, and when we get to the last third, the group might be broken up according to how many moves one has learned.

Program at The Glebe

This is where we have our ongoing classes (not seasonal programs). The Taijiquan (Tai Chi) Form taught here is the traditional form, which name is Laojia Yilu. The class is divided in three parts as outlined above, and in the last part the group is broken up according to the students’ experience.

Programs at CCA

All programs start with Standing Meditation (Zhanzhuang), when I adjust the students’ posture.
Beginners A: 9 Postures Form
Beginners B: 19 Postures Form – beginners should feel free to join this program. Please do not worry about how many “moves” there are, this program used to be the beginner program until 2015, when Chen Xiaowang created the shorter form.

Programs at OSCA

At OSCA we have separate Tai Chi and Qigong classes, during the daytime programs. There’s also an evening program, when I teach both Silk Reeling Qigong and Taijiquan (Tai Chi) in the same class. All prpgrams start with Standing Meditation (Zhanzhuang).
