Restoration Tai Chi with Victor Novick (Weekly)
This class is based on the slow, gentle, and graceful movements of Tai Chi and Chi Gong. The style is called Lineage Tai Chi as taught here in Ashland for many years by Michael Vasquez. The practice is designed to integrate and harmonize muscle systems, restoring as much as possible the basic human design. In this design individual muscles work with others in a system of movement patterns, and such systems combine with others so that the whole body becomes a unified movement complex.
The greater the harmonizing and integrating the greater the flow of life-enhancing Chi energy through the body.
About Victor Novick: “I first saw and was enchanted by the slow grace of Tai Chi movement some 45 years ago, and have been engaged in virtually a daily practice ever since. I have had a variety of teachers over the years, and studied primarily the Yang Style. The most recent was Michael Vasquez and his teaching have led me to new and more profound understandings of the practice, which I am happy to pass on to anyone interested. In Ashland I taught large classes at OLLI for six years, and small private classes for four years.”
