The curriculum is set so that students follow the linear progression of each course: Fundamentals followed by Silk Reeling and finally Form Study.
Starting with Fundamentals, each lesson builds upon the next and each of the three courses listed does the same. Therefore, we have set the program so that a student can move on from one lesson to the next and from one course to the next only upon completion.
Students are given the opportunity to review every class they have completed, but may only move ahead when a class and or course is completed.
The course study starts with Fundamentals where the basics of Tai Chi movement and terminology are introduced. It is taught by two of Master Ren’s associate teachers.
Once completed the next series of courses move to Silk Reeling taught by Master Ren while two associate instructors review each lesson to reinforce key principles.
The last and longest course is classic Form Study primarily taught by Master Ren.
Fundamentals. is a series of lessons that will help you understand the basics of Tai Chi principles both mentally and physically and how to integrate them into your daily activities. This series teaches how Tai Chi works for you in improving your strength, flexibility, balance and spirit.
Our Silk Reeling course is for students who have finished the Fundamentals section. It builds upon all the principles covered in the previous lessons. In the Silk Reeling, students will be ready to learn from Master Ren who will introduce students to theses carefully crafted exercises.
Form Study is a study of the classic forms of Chen Tai Chi as taught by Master Ren. Learn complete body exercises that work your muscles, stretch tendons and ligaments, lubricate your joints, improve your coordination, improve your posture and work your mind.
