A Taste of Tai Chi 

This class is designed for Beginners

Facilitated by

Lenny Burlingame

What to Expect

The theme of this class is to bring slow rhythmic movements in harmony with the breath to promote deep relaxation.  We will explore releasing, also known as sung, through soft, smooth, circular, spiral and rhythmic  movements. Sung is a principle in Tai Chi that can be experienced without learning the complexities of a Tai Chi form.  We will explore how these ideas can be integrated into daily life and, if desired, in learning a Tai Chi Form.  Open conversation among class participants will lead the direction of the information shared.  This class requires no prior Tai Chi experience just a willingness to learn.
