Tai Chi Intermediate

JinLi’s Tai Chi Intermediate program continues on from the foundations learnt as a beginner. It is a challenging program incorporating the Chinese Wushu Association’s Duan Wei protocols and many other skills. You should expect to reach this level within 5 years depending on the amount of time you have to practice and study.

Tai Chi Advanced

Our Advanced program provides the opportunity for students who are familiar with barehand and/or weapon routines to refine their skills in a supportive yet mentally challenging environment.

 

If you would like to attend any of our classes, contact the instructor listed for that class or contact our office. You do not need to complete an enrolment form prior to attending your first class.

Your first JinLi class is FREE - if it doesn't suit you, walk away - no pressure, no cost. If you decide to stay you can pay either weekly or by the term.

FOR INFORMATION ABOUT PRICING please CONTACT US.

There is no special equipment or clothing required for Tai Chi or Qigong - just wear loose, comfortable clothing and flat-soled shoes.
