Welcome to Eugene Tai Chi.

We are looking to post information on anything relevant to Tai Chi practice in Eugene, Or. If you have any events or want to contribute articles relating to practice or connection as in sensing hands, contact me (one of the gatekeepers) at boyspear@yahoo.com.

Join Tai Chi club.  Anyone interested in looking at Tai Chi from the perspective of connecting with another person through the practice of sensing hands is welcome.  Although it is preferred that you have some experience with a Tai Chi form, you (if you are a complete beginner) may convince me as gatekeeper of the club, to instruct you in a beginning form and principles by a 5 dollar donation. Otherwise, we only ask for a free sharing of your practice.

   Announcement

Erica Anderson of the Natural Arts Center will be teaching the Ba Pan Jia Zi (1-8 Preparatory Push Hands Drills) the last Monday of the month starting Sept 29th 2014 at the Emerald Accupuncture Center 655 East 11th, Ste 9.

In Erica’s own words …

I’ll be starting up a new class this month.  It
will be beginning training in the partnered tai chi curriculum.  We will
be exploring the idea of resting/supporting and receiving through a
series of drills called the 1-8 drills or more formally “Eight
disc-framed fixed step push hands”.  Sounds intimidating but it’s really
not and is fun.  Practicing the partner work helps to give you feed back
in the places that you are holding unnecessary tension in the body, plus
it develops the skills of learning to give energy/force/intention/ideas,
etc clearly and receive them fully.  If you are curious when I talk
about partner work, this is the place to start.  You don’t need anymore
experience then you already have and all levels of physical abilities
are welcome.  I promise no one will get pushed around!  Or, only if you
want to…

Class:
Every other Thurs at the Y 8am.  It’s been in the field across the
street but we may move in doors.
The last Monday of the month starting Sept 29th 5:30pm-7:30pm at Emerald
Acupuncture Center (My & Jim’s office) 655 East 11th, Ste 9.
Cost is donation, pay what you’d like.
