Tai Chi "Toe in the Water" Workshop
Tai Chi at 6th Dimension™ is privately run and independent of any franchised school. Read more about our Traditional Tai Chi approach (new window). Ongoing all-levels classes 2 - 5 pm.
Put your cares away for an afternoon and dip a "toe-in-the-water" to see if you like this Tai Chi thing or if it is what you thought.
SATURDAY: Next workshop. Call for current schedule.
TIME: Saturday 1.00 - 5.00 pm.
INSTRUCTOR: Dr Ranna-Lesley Lachlan, Instructor Black Belt/ 8th degree (1986, Montaigue School of Tai Chi & Bagua) (PhD, RPP, RPE, VCST, DFA, Grad. D. Mat. Anth.)...
That would be me! I've been involved in Tai Chi for over 30 years. I love it and I love teaching it. Just like everyone else, I go through passages of time where life intrudes and it seems like my Tai Chi is languishing. Not true. It is always there and new levels of understanding await, from the very first class to decades later.
Oh, did I mention that it is great for health, aids relaxation, develops focus and clarity, and - well, lots of other stuff? Did I also mention that I take it pretty seriously, too, and teach in a quite old fashioned way - there are no class Tee Shirts, no uniforms, just respect and focus on this amazing form?
LOCATION: 6th Dimension, Middletown studio (directions will be provided when you register). A little more info.
FEE: $50.00 per person. $90.00 per 2 family members.
CLASS SIZE: 6 - 10 people. Minimum must be reached to run the workshop.
WHAT WE DO IN THE WORKSHOP: We will do some really cool stuff like feeling and sensing "Chi", then I'll put you through some "paces" that might seem very unfamiliar. That is, we'll do a little sensing of our own and others' weight placement... oh, yes, we'll also do some of that lovely serene, floaty looking movement series called "The Form".
In case you are curious, I teach the long form of Yang Chen Fu style Tai Chi... but that takes about a year to learn and a lifetime to consolidate.
For the workshop, I'll just pull some sweet little treats from the whole discipline of Tai Chi for you.
NEW FOLKS and NEW STUDENTS, PLEASE ALSO NOTE:
Wear comfortable, elastic waisted long pants and loose or supple top
that allow freedom of movement. Tee shirts and track pants are fine.
Tai Chi outfits are, too, if you happen have one, but unnecessary if
you don't. Typically, dark or black pants and light colored or white
tops are worn by trainees in class. Shorts, skirts, strapless tops,
singlets etc. are not appropriate for class, and jeans are too heavy
and restrictive. (More about Tai Chi clothing at http://ezinearticles.com/?Why-Proper-Clothing-Is-So-Important-In-Tai-Chi&id=283449).
... NOW THE OTHER STUFF THAT ALWAYS MUST BE MENTIONED
