Beginners Level 

This level introduces our Tai Chi form.
It teaches the basic movements and core principles of Cheng Man Ch'ing's Tai Chi in three "thirds", ie B1, B2 & B3. Each third is taught  in a 10 week term, in bite size chunks each week. 

Fundamentals Level
  

This level builds internal awareness.
It revisits the whole of Beginners level form with a focus on self-observation, and on making changes which allow you to truly embody the principles of Tai Chi in your personal practice of the form.  

Sensing Hands

This level is a practice for real life.
Also described as "Push Hands", this pairs practice teaches us how we can stay relaxed in contact with others. We connect, listen and respond to them, without feeling anxious or threatened.  

Intermediate Level

This level deepens the meditation
It makes minor refinements to smooth out the transitions between individual postures. The form then becomes one continuous flow - an exchange of Yin and Yang that is like simply breathing. 

*Provisional class schedule will be confirmed after week 1. Timings allow for changeover between classes. Please ask about concessions (eg OAPs)
