Online Zoom Classes
Learning online is easy and fun!
Redding Tai Chi teaches the Yang Style Long form of Tai Chi. This form is taught with an emphasis on Tai Chi as a meditative or healing art and the purpose is to improve your general well-being. It takes seven to eight months of twice a week classes to learn the 108 movements of the form.
In each class you will review the previous class lesson and learn one or two new movements. Once you learn the complete set of movements it will take approximately 35 minutes, give or take a few minutes, to practice. Because of the length of the form most students will take the class over several times so that they can improve on what they have learned.
The classes are taught two nights a week in the Pacific Time Zone (California) but the classes are recorded so that if you live in another time zone or you miss a class, you can watch the video later at your convenience. We also provide short summary review video's with each class.
You might ask if the Zoom learning format is for you...
One student sums up the class clearly:
"The Zoom format works really well for me because I can see the nuances of the movements very clearly. It actually feels almost as if I’m receiving private instruction. Also, because there are no distractions, I find the experience to be more tranquil and meditative than when I’m in a group setting." - Sheila H.
Also you might ask "What about corrections? How will I know I am doing the movement correctly?"
Based on my experience in teaching Tai Chi I can confidently say that the majority of people will be able to copy and follow with the movements with a high degree of accuracy. That said, we are not teaching "competition" Tai Chi and looking for "perfect" movements. The goal is to learn how to move in a relaxed, fluid way.
