Beginner Tai Chi – Learning the Form
(TC 1 – first/third; TC 2 – second/third; and TC 3 – third/third)

T’ai Chi is often characterized as a moving meditation. Register for one class and you can attend both sessions per week – whatever your schedule allows – at no extra cost! (Level 1 – just beginning students as well as Level 2 and 3 are all in the same class.) Tuition: $195
