Are you, or do you know, a STRESSED 

OUT Teen to 20's young adult? This pandemic

 hasn't been easy on anyone, and our young

 people have been particularly hard hit. Let 

MoonWillow help you find peace in the chaos

 and uncertainty...


Learn crucial relaxation and mind-body

 coordinating skills. Tai Chi is more than a

 martial art exercise - it has proven benefits

 to mental and emotional well-being. It also

 aids in concentration. Program is 1 hour.



Join Allyn as he guides you through key

 relaxation techniques and martial art based

body movements from Tai Chi & Qigong...



At 20, Allyn has already spent half his life studying and practicing the art of Yang Style Tai Chi and Qigong, and is now a certified instructor. He currently teaches two classes on our regular Zoom schedule and wants to expand into high schools and community colleges to bring this healing art to his peers.

Tai Chi Ball Qigong

for Everyone!


Online Workshop with Allison Deputy via Zoom



 DATE TBA


2:00-3:30 PM   Fee $30




A FUN and INVIGORATING workout using solid wooden balls (one pictured above is made of solid poplar and weighs about 4 pounds. Beginner balls start at 2-3 pounds). Tai Chi wooden balls were used in ancient times to increase strength and flexibility for weapons training. Now a resurrected practice for us in the modern world, MoonWillow is offering Tai Chi Ball Qigong to enhance anyone's physical health and well-being. This workshop will cover circling, rocking, walking, silk reeling, and rotating movements with breathing techniques. Strengthen your joints and spine, and get a great upper body workout to go with the lower! Join us for this beautiful, meditative practice, like holding a planet in your hands! Don't have a ball? Contact MoonWillow for more information to order one of your own. If you prefer something lighter and less pricey, a plastic ball from any big box store will do nicely, too!

Reeling


with Jarett Sanchez


DATE & TIME TBA


Silk Reeling (Chan Si Jin) is the most universal body mechanic in all of Tai Chi.  Silk Reeling exercises involve simple, continuous, whole body movements that emphasize the spiraling nature of this skill. The continuous flow of these exercises, common to all Tai Chi styles, allows you to focus on Dan Tien rotation, rooting, and relaxation of the upper body. Join instructor Jarett Sanchez in this workshop that will add new dimensions to your regular form practice. You will also learn how this energy can be applied in everyday life.
All levels welcome! Be prepared to expand your Tai Chi horizons!


Fee: $40/session ($32 Enhanced Members)
