Rocky Mountain T'ai Chi Ch'uan
Teaching Yang style Tai Chi Chuan via the Cheng Man-Ching lineage in Boulder CO since 1977
You can start now with Tai Chi Elements. No experience needed; drop-ins welcome. Elements is offered on Tue afternoons at 4:30.
Students learn the Five Animal Frolics and the Form Sequences that underlie the complete tai chi form. Contact us if you're interested in joining or just drop by to join a class.
Our next beginning form class will be in the Fall. Contact us to be put on our mailing list or watch this space for registration info when we schedule the class.
Our next First Sunday session will be on June 3.
(No First Sunday in May since our studio space is torn up for a septic replacement.)
The first Sunday of every month is an open practice session for students at RMTCC who know at least the First Third of the form -- at Beth and Lee's home studio in Hygiene, starting at 10:30 AM.
Lee's Latest Translation Effort
I recently finished a translation of the 3rd Treatise: Concentrate Qi, Achieve Softness from Professor Cheng's 13 Treatises.
This one sprawls all over the place: Daoist Internal Alchemy, Laozi discussions, Yijing hexagrams. All part of concentrating qi to achieve softness with the method of sinking qi to the dantian.
You can find all my translations on the Translations page.
We base our work at Rocky Mountain Tai Chi on the "practice tripod" defined by Professor Cheng: form, push hands, and sword.
We also incorporate practice of various qigong sets, fundamental drills, standing meditation, and internal work.
See a description of our classes for more information.
Tai Chi Elements at Cancer Center
On Friday mornings, we work with cancer patients at the Cancer Center at Boulder Community Hospital. It's a great opportunity for us to help people by sharing the art and its benefits. This class is open to anyone dealing with cancer treatment whether at BCH or other facilities. Click here to see the BCH flyer.
