Local Taiji Classes

Our Association is committed to promoting Taiji which is offered at numerous venues in Thunder Bay.

The Taiji classes at the Academy embrace Chen Style (under Grandmaster Chen Zhenglei), Yang Style and Modern Style. Chen classes include 5, 18 & 74 (Old Frame 1) forms, Chen 47 Sword and Broadsword. Yang and Modern classes involve the 8, 16, 24 and 48 Forms, 32 & 42 Sword and Broadsword.  There are also classes in Taiji Fan. All classes include Six Forms Taiji Qigong.

Please note:  At the Academy the class times will continue to be spaced out to prevent congestion due to overlap and to allow time for cleaning. Please don’t come more than 10 minutes early.
Class sizes are limited (first come first served) and the pay structure has been modified.

***ZOOM TAI CHI Classes with Oliver Reimer:

Zoom has been a boon to us during these months of social isolation. It is an awkward medium for doing Taiji together but it does have several advantages. We can learn to adapt our movements to the limited spaces of our homes and that is a very practical skill. The other advantage is that when no one is looking at us we can feel free to make mistakes. Making mistakes is the way the learning process works.
