That is, they are not limited to the 12 week terms that our regular classes follow.

First timers and new beginners are welcome.
Currently, about 35 folks attend Saturday mornings.

First timers, and others,
please note that
on time arrival is by no later than 7:50 a.m.

The doors will be closed and locked at 7:55 a.m.
with no one admitted after that time.

Tai Chi requires no extra equipment.
Any comfortable clothing is fine.

Bring a change of shoes / slippers
for this indoor practice
to prevent tracking in mud, etc.,
and to reduce the squeaking of soles
on the hall floor. Thanks!

(Need Tai Chi slippers? Click here.)

NO cameras or recorders of any kind are allowed.

You are also welcome to join us for breakfast
at a nearby restaurant immediately following the practice.

Waiver: By attending this practice, you hereby agree to release and hold harmless The T’ai Chi Ch’uan Study Center, Ltd., the instructors and the practice location from any liability for any injury or harm that might result from your attendance and/or participation.

To Our Saturday Morning Tai Chi Friends 

Welcome.

As you get in your car to head to the practice,
remember “Seatbelt Tai Chi”,
i.e., check yourself with the TC principles,
begin to deepen your breath, etc.

Please be sure to arrive at 7:50 a.m.
to allow time to shift your clothes, change your shoes
and to do the Bear Exercise warm up.

This is a silent practice.
Moving as one is a main idea.
Follow the leader and the front row.

After each set of three rounds,
we stand for a minute or two of qi gong.
Please remain quiet and still
and sink your heart/mind and breath to your center.

Questions are welcome during the break.

Thank you.

NO cameras or recorders of any kind are allowed.
