Learn the Yang school short form of 24 individual movements, which is the most widely performed tai chi routine in the world.

This simplified Tai Chi style will be taught in 10 sixty-minute interactive online sessions. Along with learning the form students will work on understandings of footwork, hand movements and breath-work. Mind, body, breath and motion combine to bring the practitioner into a balanced state of internal and external flow with the universe. And best of all anyone can do it and it only takes a few minutes of regular practice a day to feel better. During these interactive Zoom sessions students will have the opportunity to practice with others virtually, ask questions and receive live feedback from Keith.

Tai Chi uses circular, flowing movements to calm the mind and relax the body. Tai Chi helps guide you into harmony and balance with yourself and the universe, while also helping with stress and anxiety, balance and flexibility, improving posture, enhancing the immune system, getting better sleep, lowering blood pressure and improving your overall sense of well being. Today more than ever the world could use a little Tai Chi!

My Grandmother’s Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending our Hearts and Bodies
by Resmaa Menakem
 
When: Wednesday evenings from 7:30-9pm on Nov 4, 18, Dec 2 & 16  Where: Virtual via Zoom
Who:  This particular discusion series is limited to 8 white identifying individuals
Why:  Resmaa Menakem speaks in to why it is is important for white bodied folks to gather together and do this work specifically with other white bodied folks. …and what I feel is the most important thing is that white bodies have to begin to get into a room with each other, deal with the uncomfortableness, deal with the hierarchy that starts to show up, deal with all the brutality that starts to happen with each other’s bodies and then figure out how they’re gonna develop culture all around beginning  to heal that over time, right?
