Intro to Yang-Style Tai Chi
Dec. 6, 9 am to 4:30 pm
Yang-style tai chi is one of the five traditional schools
of tai chi. Yang is the most popular form of tai chi
in the world and, along with other forms, is noted for positive effects to mental and physical health. This
workshop will introduce initial movements of the 24 forms of Yang-style tai chi. Like all traditional sets of tai
chi, the ancient promise of this exercise
is the promotion of flexibility, strength and a vigorous old age. Tai chi is easy to learn and can become a
long-lasting and health-supporting practice. Beginners welcome. Yang-style tai chi is the major style
included in Tai Chi for Diabetes so instructors will benefit from studying the Yang 24.
