Tai Chi is known for its soft flowing movements. Within these movements are eight primary body energies. These eight are the foundation of every tai chi form movement and fighting application and are present in single or multiple combinations of every move.
In this workshop we will explore and demonstrate some of these energies and applications so how you can engage these in your own practice. We will use the 24 Simplified Form postures as a jumping off point to demonstrate and practice some of these principles. Students who know the first half of the form or are currently practicing the form are encouraged to participate.

Chris Himmel began his study of martial arts in the early 1990s. It was not until he discovered Taijiquan that he truly found what he was searching for. Currently, Chris studies the Yang Style Short, Long, Ball and Saber forms along with Push Hands and the Taiji Fighting Set. Chris’s passion for Tai Chi is evident in his classes as he likes nothing better than sharing his knowledge with others. In the Fall of 2017 Chris joined the staff of Serenity at Summit teaching Qigong for patients recovering from addiction.
