What you'll learn in this tai chi class:

The word "Beginner" sounds deceptively elementary. But it is not so. After two decades, I still repeat the beginner’s routine as the indispensable starter for my daily practice. My grandfather taught me this routine when I was seven years old. Every time I thought I got them, I discovered later there was a deeper layer. It seems to me that there is no ending to the beginner routine. Or the beginning is at the same time the ending. Practice per se is perfect.

This Class is a perfect fit for:
  • Intellectuals who want to learn the Tai Chi movements and understand the ancient wisdom within
  • Hardworking professionals who need to relax and relieve anxiety and look for an alternative besides Yoga, sitting meditation, pilates, etc.
  • Healthcare professionals (doctors, therapists, healers) who look for a compliment to their existing healing modalities
  • Practitioners who look for a low impact and healing body-mind exercise
  • Practitioners of other Tai Chi schools who want to deepen their studies through revisiting the shared fundamentals
  • Practitioners of other Martial Arts who want to know what makes Tai Chi unique

Tai Chi Fundamentals: Not Only For Beginners
Reviewed by Anonymous on 3/12/2020
TaiChi Ray’s class was remarkable in that I actually felt more calm and relaxed whilst performing the movements. The class consisted of only 6 or 7 participants, which allowed Ray to monitor how well we were receiving his instructions. The Qi Gong moves and the breath work seemed simple and easy enough to do but coordinating the movements to synchronize with breathing needed some effort.I will try to practice them from here onwards. I can see myself attending more classes in the future and highly recommend Tai Chi Ray’s method of teaching this time-honored practice of Tai Qi and Qi Gong.

This is a wonderful Tai Chi class. You get very personalized instruction and Ray is clearly passionate and knowledgeable about practicing and teaching Tai Chi. The class is accessible to anyone, even if you’ve never tried Tai Chi. It’s both challenging and relaxing. I’ll definitely be back!

As a new person to meditation and Tai Chi this was an excellent experience. Ray initiated the session with a meditation explaining every single step and what to expect from them and continued with the intro to the Tai Chi movements. I wasn’t able to stay for the whole class but I will highly recommend it and will return
