Our school banner. The poem (vertical columns) reads:

"In Hunyuan Tai Chi,

awareness and energy, spirit and form,

link and circulate continuously,

like water flowing…"

All new students begin with the Foundation Studies Program:
Foundation Studies Program
The one year (four term) Foundation Studies Program covers the 
fundamental theory and practice of Qigong and Tai Chi, in preparation for all advanced Tai Chi and Qigong classes. Foundation Studies "jibengong" in Chinese — focuses on the hidden inner essence of Qigong and Taiji, which we approach from all four Taoist planes: the physical, energetic, mental and spiritual.
This knowledge of the inner essence — the "gong" — was once a closely guarded secret. Here it is condensed into an intense one-year introductory training program which will save students years of searching, confusion and false starts, and put their personal Tai Chi practice on a firm foundation.

Classes are approximately 30% theory, 70% practice.
Classes are taken sequentially over four terms (one year).
Every class is offered each term.
