Tai Chi Course - Online 

with Sifu Stephen Watson

Saturday, April 10 - Saturday June 26, 3-3:45pm EST

*No class Memorial day weekend 5/29

Over this 11 week course, you will learn the Shibashi Taiji Form with Sifu Stephen Watson.

Developed and refined in the 1980’s by Professor Lin and Master He at the Shanghai Hospital, these 18 movements rooted in Tai Chi and Qi Gong comprise the most modern set in Tai Chi’s evolution. 

This exercise routine is flowing, serene, and accessible. Even those challenged by memorization of choreography will find physical stimulation, mental release, and euphoric emotions through commitment to this engaging and enlivening practice. Tai Chi Shibashi’s stretching ways and rhythmic sways support the organs and joints of our bodies. 

Melt stress from Body and Brain as you Breathe new life into your Being!

Sifu Watson will provide a link to a playlist to which weekly videos will be added in support of your practice between sessions.

Zoom link and password will be emailed to all registrants and will be the same each week.
