There has been a growing interest in learning Tai Chi Long Form. As a result I will offer a series of classes to learn the Yang Style Traditional Form, 105 Movements. Although the techniques in Traditional Form are more comprehensive than those used in modern Yang forms, the movements are basically the same as 24 and 40 Form.
The 36 hour series of classes will be offered every other weekend at the Quarter Path Recreation Center beginning January 9 & 10, 2016. The classes will go through the weekend of April 30/May 1, 2016. Each class will be 2 hours and will begin at 1:00 on both Saturday and Sunday. The cost for the total series will be $190. The economics of renting the room for the class requires that I have a minimum of 10 students. If you have questions please contact me.
