Weekly Schedule:

Monday 9:30-10:30 am - Internal Foundations - Follow along exercises, no experience necessary. This class focuses on loosening and opening the body,  connecting the breath, calming the mind, and relieving stress.  Primary objectives are to develop strength, flexibility, and balance while building awareness of Internal movement principles.

Monday 6:30-7:30 pm - Swimming Dragon - The Swimming Dragon form is a twisting, coiling, fusion of Internal practices and is an excellent art for improving strength, balance and flexibility. One of the best features of this form is that it is all performed in one small space. This form is the most physically demanding of the forms taught. Attendance 2x/week is required.

Monday 7:30-8:30 pm - Lok Hup Ba Fa - Lok Hup Ba Fa is an Internal Art containing elements of Tai Chi, Xing Yi, Bagua, and Yiquan. Moy Lin Shin referred to it as the Cadillac of Internal Arts. Lok Hup harmonizes the body and mind, while nourishing a balanced state of calm awareness and vitality. Attendance 2x/week is required.

*Schedule is subject to change depending on enrolment in any given class.

-For students studying any of the forms online - Tai Chi, Lok Hup, or Swimming Dragon, attendance twice per week is required. Learning Internal Arts is a complex and lifelong process, and practicing only once per week will yield little benefit.

Students who are attending LIVE Tai Chi classes on Tuesday nights and wish to supplement their learning with online tuition may choose to attend  one or two online Tai Chi form classes per week at a cost of $40 or $70 per month respectively.
