NEW STUDENTS Courses and Class Information
Chen Tai Ji Quan and Qi Gong
• All new students can attend any Foundation Tai Ji class (if you miss the Course start dates), as they are aimed at new students to the Chen Style, as well as more experienced students. Shifu Liu works particularly with posture and movement correction over the 8 weeks. It is important to practice regularly to learn and remember the movements so it is best to sign up for a group of 8 classes to obtain most benefit. You can come more than once a week or make up a class on another day if you miss one.
• Attend one of our 4 hour Foundation workshops aimed at new students if you are unable to make the Sunday course, (details below)
If you are experienced in the Chen style you can ask Shifu Liu if you can attend other classes at your level of practice.
• Da Bei qi gong classes are open to all, no experience is necessary to attend.
