Erin Tracy will be leading instruction in Returning Tai Chi Chu’an form (Pangu Tai Chi) Sept 28-Nov 16, 2017 for Eight Thursday nights 6:15-7:15 PM at Open Door Yoga Studio .
The first date is September 28 – The cost is $96 for the series due by Monday, Sept 18. After Sept 18 the cost for the series will be $110. Please register by Sept 26 at the latest.
For this series, Erin will be showing the form and sequence of a powerful and efficient Tai Chi Chu’an form that was created by Tai Chi Ch’an Master Vincent Chu working closely with Qi Gong Master Ou, Wen Wei. Tai Chi Chu’an was originally a martial application of Qi Gong (energy cultivation).
We aren’t doing anything difficult or using martial applications in this class. Regular Tai Chi practice strengthens and protects the joints – working gently with the ligaments, tendons, and muscles. The added benefit of this form, Returning Form Tai Chi or Pangu Tai Chi, is the support for your organs as well. You should feel awesome after a class session! We will take it easy in this class; it will not be intense or require a lot of endurance. However, it is best to already have a regular movement routine (like walking or gardening) since we will be on our feet for 55-60 minutes. Of course, you may sit as needed. Please see empowerwellness.com or contact Erin for more information or to sign up. Register in advance at Open Door Yoga to get the early registration pricing.
PLEASE NOTE: Erin has been studying Tai Chi with Vincent Chu and his advanced students. She will be introducing the Level I Pangu Tai Chi (Returning Form Tai Chi Chu’an).
Have to miss a class? We always review what we did the week(s) before. Pangu Tai Chi has a specific sequence that will be shared over the 8 weeks. Video and written support also will be provided so students can practice on their own too, if they would like.
