Tai Chi – 24 Form

January-11 to March-22, 2022 from 6:15 pm to 7:15 pm

Tai Chi is a gentle form of exercise, a martial art, and moving meditation, based on the principle of the interplay of Yin and Yang. Slow and graceful movements improve balance, coordination, and well-being. Emphasis on proper alignment promotes Qi flow through the body, and sustained concentration makes this an excellent exercise for the mind as well. Kelly Maclean has trained since 1988 under some of the great masters and lineage holders of our time, including Shouyu Liang (her primary teacher), Chen Xiaowang, Chen Zhenglei, Yang Zhen Duo, He Weiqi, Madame Wang Jurong, Dr. Yang Jwing Ming, and Sam Masich. As a member of the Canadian National Wushu Team, she had an illustrious international competition career, garnering many medals and Grand Championship titles. She holds a 7th-degree black belt and is certified in internal styles including Taijiquan (Tai Chi), Xingyiquan, Baguazhang, Water boxing, and Qigong. In her teaching, she emphasizes correct biomechanics and structure. She is well known for her attention to detail and her unique talent for explaining movement through analogies and evocative descriptions.
