You might ask if the Zoom learning format is for you...
What students are saying:
“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.
“I am looking forward to continuing my practice and Tai Chi long form journey. The classes and review videos continue to be a tremendous resource. ” - Jack Z.
“I really enjoyed the classes, I am planning to continue and look forward to meeting you sometime. Zoom was great, it was like having a private teacher. And it was so nice to have the emails available to practice whenever I had a little time... I liked the way you taught the class as well. The amount to learn was just right. Even if I had a little trouble during the class, (like doing brush knee to the right, my brain only wanted to go left), with the emails and practicing a few times every day, I was able to learn it. I always looked forward to the next class... thanks again...” - Pam
Introduction to Tai Chi: Section 1
This is the introductory class to Yang Style Long Form where the student learns the basic principles of Tai Chi and the 13 main movements. Each class introduces new movements. At the end of two months, you will have a sequence of movements that take approximately 5-8 minutes to complete. Learning Section 1 is comparable in length to learning a "short" form of Tai Chi.
Section 2 of the form introduces more advanced movements, such as turns and kicks. On completion of this section, it will take approximately 20 minutes to complete the first and second sections of the Yang Style Long Form.
Section 3: This class completes the three sections of the Yang Family Long Form. More complex stepping routines are introduced. Once the entire form is learned, it takes between 32-38 minutes to practice. Students are encouraged to take the class several times to become more familiar with the movements of the form. The goal of the class is for students to be able to practice the whole long form on your own.

"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 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 and learn to be more comfortable in your body.
