Tai Chi Chuan

Tung Family / Yang Style

Burlington & Lincoln, Vermont

Summer 2017

To be simple, pure, clear, still, level and constant; to be impartial without action, and in action to be aligned with heaven, this is the way to sustain the spirit.
- Zuangzi


All welcome to join in learning the supreme internal art of Tai Chi Chuan as passed directly through four generations of the Tung Family Lineage, awakening one’s potential to generate well being for body, mind, and spirit.
Teachings focus on the practice of sequential postures of the traditional Yang style Slow Set along with complementary exercises, qigong, meditation, push hands/partner practice, and Yin/Yang principles, philosophy and application.
