This event repeats every week on Wednesday between 7/11/2018 and 10/17/2018.

Julio Cortes is a movement teacher with over 30 years of martial and movement arts experience, specializing in Taijiquan. Taijiquan, also known as Taichi ch’uan, or Taichi, is an internal movement art that includes all of the following: fighting, self-defense, weapons, mental development, meditation, health and healing. The last three are what it is best known for now.

In this class students will develop greater body/mind awareness, strength, range of motion, coordination and balance while learning how to move gracefully. Specifically, we will practice a basic warm-up and learn the first set of a powerful and rare long form taught in Asia. Suitable for any age and body condition, this a great opportunity to learn one of the best regarded and most popular body/mind practices in the world. This class is free and no advanced registration is required.
