Classes Offered

Sigung Clear's 13 move form is taught step by step in our Monday night form classes. Sifu Greg carefully instructs each movement and uses exercises and demonstrations so that students not only understand the choreography of a movement, but the feel and function of the movement. All movements are taught sequentially. Students will also learn movements from the Yang form as they advance.
Join us for our Saturday Practice Sessions.

Sifu Greg Explaining

Workshops

T'ai chi mechanics create relaxation and efficiency. For musicians, this means they can deliver more energy into their music and avoid repetitive stress injury. For athletes, they find more power and stamina. Many groups have reached greater potential by learning t'ai chi principles.  Sifu Greg has worked extensively with pianists and helped a number of athletes. Check out the article about his work with violists in a local musicians newsletter. Call us to set up a workshop for your group.

Greg has helped me integrate t'ai chi principles into my performing and teaching. I experience greater efficiency and comfort physically, which translates into longer and more enjoyable hours at the piano as well as a more flexible and satisfying sound. I am experiencing a more authentic connection to the instrument and music as well as communication with the audience.
