Tai Chi Chuan
Quiet like a mountain, moving like a river, Tai Chi Chuan is a sequence of gentle movements based on images found in nature. In this class, Irving Yee, a member of the William CC Chen Tai Chi School, introduces students to the internal martial arts, and promotes awareness of their health benefits. Students split into groups according to their level of expertise, exploring movements at their own pace, whether as beginners or more advanced students of Tai Chi. Sessions are held on Saturday mornings.
