REGISTRATION FOR SPRING CLASSES IS OPEN NOW!
April 11th – June 30th, 2023
Tuesdays, 11am | BEGINNER CLASS
Fridays, 11am | INTERMEDIATE CLASS*
Depending on preference and skill level, students may attend one or both classes.
Tuesday’s classes will be tailored for beginners as well as serving as a refresher for those who have taken some tai chi but need to review the basics again. These classes will accommodate beginners and intermediates and will be calibrated over time to fit the needs of the attendees. Students who are true beginners will find the pace of the Tuesday classes just right, while more advanced beginner students may choose to also attend the Friday classes to find more context and flow.
In Friday classes, intermediate students will continue to practice what they have come to know already as they learn new movements. These classes will be more tapered to individual growth, focusing on both the in-class instruction and the self-practice model to build the foundation of a meaningful practice.
*For those who have previously completed a beginner class with Rosie Segil.
Classes will be held at UUCGL in our Parish Hall. A small donation per class will be requested to assist with the building costs and help support Rosie's teacher.
Rosie Tan Segil, is a Wudang certified teacher with more than 8 years of practice experience. She teaches in the Daoist Gate tradition of Tai Chi (also written “Taiji”) and Qigong. Her tradition is a very gentle form on the body, known for its health benefits, and welcoming to people of all ages and abilities. The style she teaches was developed in the Wudang Mountains of China and taught to her by Daoist monk Zhou Shifu.
“Taiji can give you the strength of a lumberjack, the pliability of a child, and the peace of mind of a sage.”
– Asian proverb
