All classes are hybrid, Zoom and in-person.
What is the Covid protocol?
In-person sessions are OPTOINAL.
- There will be no more than 8 participants permitted in the space during any given session. (This is lower than previously, because of the prolific Omicron variant and will go back to 9 after it peaks.),
- You must wear a mask (N/KN 95 ONLY – also different than previous guidelines).
- You must agree to have been fully vaccinated or can produce a negative test result taken within five days of attending,
- Have not traveled within six days,
- Have not been at an uncontrolled “social event” where people were not socially distancing and were unmasked (shopping is not a social event) within six days of attending an in-person session.

Beginner Tai Chi – Learning the Form
(TC 1 – first/third; TC 2 – second/third; and TC 3 – third/third)
The T’ai Chi form is a series of postures linked together in a continuous, fluid manner. As an internal Chinese martial art, the form focuses on self-cultivation, integrates both physical and mental energy mechanics, promotes relaxation, and builds a sense of presence and awareness. 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

Best of all these exercises can be easily added to your self-care tool box and used daily. Classes taught by Master Wasentha Young. Tuition is $180
