Tai Chi for Beginners: An Introduction to Yang Style

The most popular style of Tai Chi is Yang Style. Yang style features gentle graceful movement.If you have watched people doing Tai Chi in the Park you have probably seen at Yang Style. The movement is more expansive and deeper than Sun Style. If you are comfortable stepping backwards, can turn your head to either side, and can stand on one foot for a second or two you should be comfortable with this class. If you have difficulty with any of the above, we recommend building your strength and balance with Tai Chi for Arthritis. (Sun Style) The course pace will be quicker than Tai Chi for Arthritis.
