About the Exercises

The Yang style of tai chi is characterized by more open movements with clear expression of the application - it is the perfect study for those who want to practice tai chi for robust health, mindfulness and subtle connection. Also known as ‘Long Fist’ or ‘Long Boxing’ , the Yang style barehand routine is probably the common Tai Chi (taijiquan) form studied in the world today by students serious to learn the traditional art. There are many variations; here we study the Masich Internal Arts Method (MIAM) approach to the form.

Using Zoom or WebEx Meetings

Both Zoom and WebEx are free to use - when you receive a meeting invitation by email, you can easily sign in for the session by clicking on the 'Join' link, up to 15 minutes before the lesson start time. You can join a meeting by using any browser, but we recommend you install the app when prompted, as it is more reliable. If you are joining directly from the app or browser, enter in the meeting number and password you were sent, and the email it was sent to. Once connected, you can join in with the class, see all your classmates, ask questions, chat with others as well as us, and many other great features which we can start to use as we get more used to using the new medium.

Tips for video meetings

  • If at all possible always use the meetings app on your computer or device - it’s much more reliable than a browser. 
  • Check your background - try to avoid having strong light behind you. 
  • If you want to be seen clearly (e.g. so we can correct you) use contrasting clothing to your background.
