Tai Chi for Balance

Tai Chi for Balance is a form dedicated to cultivating balance in your life.  Not only is it a premier form for those who are really struggling with balancing physically, but it brings balance back into a life that is stressful, can feel overwhelming, and gives a sense of inner peace, centeredness, and calm.

Three Levels

There are three levels of Tai Chi for Balance so that those who are developing, can continue to challenge themselves as they practice.

Tai Chi for Balance Level 1 – an 8 movement form that incorporates mindful stepping in all directions, honoring knee, hip and waist flexibility and alignment.  It is a perfect form for someone who falls, has had trauma or injury due to an accident, who has a fear of falling, or lives with high pressure or stress.

Tai Chi for Balance Level 2 – 12 movement form based on the original 8 that incorporates more challenging foot positions and balance postures with neuromuscular movements that challenge the brain/body relationship.  Again, this form is great for anyone who feels they want balance in their lives – physical, emotional, or mental.

Tai Chi for Balance Level 3 – The short version of the full Guang Ping Yang Tai Chi Chuan form with modified step work. When students are comfortable in this form, they are encouraged to practice the original unmodified Guang Ping form.
