Tai Chi with Dustin McCreery | September 14th, 5-6pm
Tai Chi Chuan (Taijiquan) is a moving meditation and martial art that embodies the principle of yin/yang. Done slowly, Taiji students find themselves entering a calm state of coordinated movement. Done quickly, the movement can be adapted to a martial context. Taiji students often refer to themselves as players rather than practitioners, because whether doing the solo slow form or two person games such as “push hands”, students stir a curiosity and a playfulness that offers bodily insight. In this class participants will practice the solo form, which is a set of postures with an emphasis on the essence of Taijiquan, meditative movement.
