What's Included

Instructor: Christopher Plummer Beginning T’ai Chi-the Yang 13 Posture Form For beginners of all ages and abilities, a 6 week introduction to the ancient Chinese martial art, exercise, and moving meditation known as T’ai Chi Chuan. Classes are designed so that students will learn several postures each week. Students will have two things from every class- something new they’ve learned about T’ai Chi or their own practice of it, and a few moments of stillness as we perform the postures together. In addition to instructor led classes, I will provide weekly “class notes” via email, and access to several Youtube videos of the form. With regular practice students can expect to benefit within 1 or 2 weeks. By the end of the session students should be able to complete the 13 posture Yang form and be well on their way to attaining the benefits of relaxation, stress relief, and body awareness. Regular practice is recommended. Students who complete this class are qualified to continue T’ai Chi studies in any of the “Experiences T’ai Chi” courses offered by the instructor at Jointure or elsewhere. Wednesdays, August 31st, September 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th, and October 5th (Wear loose comfortable clothing)

About This Organizer

The Jointure is a 501(c)3 organization that has been providing community education for almost 100 years. It began in 1914 as a small community initiative in Bound Brook through the Board of Education. Over the years, the Jointure expanded and partnered with other area school districts in Somerset County. Today, the Jointure represents a true “joint venture” in learning. Adult education classes are available from the northern part of the county in Basking Ridge to the southern part of the county in Hillsborough. In addition, the Jointure has partnered with local schools providing pre-school, kindergarten and before and after school programs. We look forward to continuing to bring quality education and experiences to the communities of Somerset County.
