Please note: When the Academy is open 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.
