Hiromi’s Spring 2018 Workshop

Come join us for Hiromi Sensei’s Spring 2018 Workshop!

Hiromi Sensei will be teaching the 6-Step Beginner T’ai Chi form. This form has something to offer everyone — if you are brand new to T’ai Chi, it is a great introduction to the basic principles of moving more mindfully.

For intermediate students it provides a very helpful review and also offers opportunities to work on the balance needed for kicks beyond the 14-step.

Additionally, it can be a wonderfully convenient option for all students for their home practice when time is limited.
