Connect with Intention through Movement & Stillness

Download Free Connect With Intentions chart

This is a movement sequence with 9 themes, each facing a different direction. Each theme is a chosen movement based on Tai Chi Ch’üan and ends with a moment of stillness, during which one connects with an element, a color, a specific area in the body to promote health, and an affirmation to actualize each intention.

After teaching T’ai Chi Ch’üan for 28 years, I created this sequence by blending many disciplines for something simple that people could take with them and enjoy.

For your own practice, once you learn the movements, you can print the chart and create your own affirmations, allowing the Stillness moment at the end of each intention to be as long as you need.

Tai Chi Chüan class

I am delighted to let you know that Faith Gregor is joining me to start a new program of our Tai Chi Ch’üan classes at the Buck recreation center in Littleton starting in March, 2021.

All my classes will move at that time. The first week in March, we present a couple of free introductions and then start the Beginners 1 as well as the Ongoing Advanced classes.

Faith will teach Wednesdays at 9:15am and Maedée the Saturday at 9:15am for Beginners. The Ongoing Advanced will be on Saturdays at 10:30am alternating with both teachers.

The courses run in a 6 week format and each participant needs to register ahead of the starting time with the South Suburban Parks and Recreation District.

There is a minimum of 5 students and a maximum of 15.

The soft flow and harmonious movements of the Tai Chi Ch’üan encourage balance, longevity and peace of mind and gradually describe an allegorical journey through life. Students learn the long and short forms from the Yang style.

Most Tai Chi methods have an emphasis on the fighting aspect derived from martial arts. However, in this class, we will instead focus on safe, fluid movement that brings ease and peace to our daily lives. At the end of class, students leave with a smile and a sense of calm and well-being.
