Details about this class

My name is William Douglass. I have taught Tai Chi and Meditation continuously at PCC for fifteen years. I have twenty four years experience practicing Tai Chi. Tai Chi I 182S & Tai Chi II 182G are online, remotely offered classes. The class consists of numerous detailed, multiple view videos of me demonstrating the Yang style Twenty Four form. Supplemental materials are offered to learn how energy flows and how to nurture your power. Tai Chi II follows the same format with more advanced theories and applications. There a once a week thirty minute check in where I teach live online to promote this week's forms. The weekly test is by a four question open-book quiz available for the duration of the term. At the end, you are required to submit a post reflection assessment as a final paper. One to two pages are enough. You may contact me if you have any questions. Thanks!


There is no additional technology required for this class.
