SSLC invites you to take this introduction into Chen Pan Ling Tai Chi with Ocean. The base of this class will be meditative, calming, relaxing and restorative while learning the sensations of chi development with an emphasis on body structure and alignment. As students become familiar with the cornerstones of this art and cultivate a regular practice we can move into mobility and flexibility exercises that will increase circulation and focus.
