Enjoy tai chi the tradional way, outdoors overlooking the beautiful Woodlands' Waterway. Join us for Shibanshi tai chi and Yang style 8 step form, Classes are offered June through the end of August.
The student's journey begins with the Yang Style 8 Step Form. This form was designed for seniors with mobility issues. It is a good form to introduce students to the basic movements used in tai chi.
Once the form is completed, students may conitune the journey by learning the Beijing Short Form. This form contains the core movements of the tai chi long form without the repetitions. Once completed, students will understand basic movements of tai chi.
After completing Level I, the student is ready to explore the Yang Style 108 Posture Form or long form. The long form is taught in 3 sections and can be completed in 6 to 10 months. Students can receive the health benefits of tai chi without the long form. However, to maximize the benefits, it is necessisary to learn the long form and have a basic understanding of tai chi theory.
Join Sifu Neighbors in Shibashi tai chi. These 18 exercises were designed so people can experience the health benefits of tai chi without memorizing a long sequence of movements. Shibashi is a great introduction to tai chi. It is also a good, safe exercise for people with chronic medical conditions or mobility issues that are not able to practice traditional tai chi. These exercises can be done standing up, sitting down and in a wheelchair.
