White Tiger Qigong

with Ellie Hayes | MSAC and Zoom |10 Tuesdays 10/4 | 12pm-12:45pm|

Open to public | Ages 12+ $35 member / $60 public

White Tiger Qigong comes to us from the Nam Hoa Temple Tradition of southern China. This form includes an Energy Workout – simple Qigong movements practiced with repetition – as well as a sequence of movements looking very much like Tai Chi – flowing from one to the other, stepping, turning, etc.  The form has 36 named movements (some of which are repetitions), ranging from simple to complex.  As the movements are learned, we can deepen our experience of their energetic qualities and spiritual intent.

Sun Style Long Form

with Ellie Hayes | MSAC and Zoom | 10 Tuesdays, starts Oct 4 | 1:30pm-2:15pm

Open to public| Ages 12+ | $35 member / $60 public

Tai Chi Vermont’s Fall Prevention Tai Chi Program is drawn from the longer Sun Style Tai Chi form.  This semester we will explore the 73-movement “mother form”.  It has some kicks and turns that might pose a challenge to balance, and yet it is satisfying to learn, adaptable for all ages and abilities, and serves as an excellent introduction to Tai Chi principles. In these times of so much change and daily doses of worrisome news, establishing a Tai Chi practice can lend stability and stress relief, mindfulness and enjoyment to your life. Please join us!

Hua Yue Tai Chi is my root form, since I have been practicing and refining it for fifty years!    Its lineage is far from mainstream, but it deserves to be perpetuated, as it offers a rare exposure to one of the earliest Tai Chi forms of ancient China, and an unsurpassed opportunity to learn Tai Chi principles experientially.  For location and other details:
