Tai ji quan is a meditative martial art that consists of a set of individual poses that are performed consecutively as a single, fluid form. The objective of tai ji quan is to enable the practitioner to guide the flow of qi in and through the body through slow, focused movement. In this course, students will learn the Wu style of tai ji quan while becoming more aware of the flow of qi. All classes include: 1) standing meditation or remedial exercises, 2) verbal explanations of method and theory, 3) visual demonstrations, 4) opportunities to follow along, and 5) working in partners or with small groups to develop sensitivity and receive direct feedback.
