Fun, Safe and Nonjudgmental

For a long time I have been interested in a meaningful physical practice that would be challenging but also within my abilities. I took a few tai chi classes before but it didn’t spark my interest. I have been studying with Dorian for a few years now and the depth and breadth of her approach continues to challenge and engage me, drawing me ever deeper into the art. Another extraordinary benefit for me is the community of interesting and diverse students that has formed around her teaching, offering a very fun, safe, nonjudgmental context for both solo and partner work.

So you’ve read through this website and you’re thinking this may be a good fit, you’d like to try a taiji class. We call this “Commencing” – it is the first move of the Taiji solo form. And as with everything, the first move is often the most difficult to perform (no matter how simple it is).

If you don’t see an introductory class that fits your schedule, contact me to find out about other options.

A few tips:

  1. Wear comfortable shoes. Flat-soled sneakers usually work best for most people.
  2. Wear comfortable clothing. Clothes you can move in without feeling constricted.
  3. Bring a bottle of fresh water.

That’s it – come ready to laugh, relax, and enjoy the movement.
