These classes teach Yang style tai chi taught in the NaiShinDo lineage. NAiShinDo means Inner Sacred Way, and is a network of schools and tai chi classes in Japan founded by Master Fu Tamon Toyoki Nagao. My own master, Rebecca Knowles, learnt Tai Chi in Japan in the 1990’s, learning from Master Fu Tamon Toyoki Nagao.
The first form learnt is the long form, large frame hand form, and we can then progress from there to include partner work and weapons forms. These classes are suitable for all levels of fitness as we can adapt to suit your level and ability.
