« back to classes page
This course covers powerful Qigong and agile steps. It is ideal for self-growth and healing – a suitable next step for those who have completed “Tai Chi for Arthritis” or “Tai Chi for Health". The movements of Sun Long Form Tai Chi will be covered.

The Sun style (??) t'ai chi ch'uan is well known for its smooth, flowing movements which omit the more physically vigorous crouching, leaping and fa jin of some other styles. The footwork of Sun style is unique, when one foot advances or retreats the other follows. It also exhibits small circular movements with the hand. Its gentle postures and high stances make it very suitable for geriatric exercise and martial arts therapy.
 
Sun style t'ai chi ch'uan was developed by Sun Lutang (1860-1933), who was considered expert in two other internal martial arts styles:  xingyiquan and baguazhang before he came to study t'ai chi ch'uan. Today, Sun style ranks fourth in popularity and fifth in terms of seniority among the five family styles of t'ai chi ch'uan.
