Tai Chi Basics with Master Sean Boutin
Tuesday and Thursday 11:15 am – 12:15 pm

At North Country Tai Chi LLC, no class is more important than our Tai Chi Basics course. All Tai Chi movement is an expression of layered simplicity and our basics course introduces you to the logic of how to do that intelligently and in balance. This is a time-tested Chinese tradition and it is taught one step at a time with Master Sean. The sequences you learn in Tai Chi Basics sets the foundation for the simple grace for which Tai Chi is known and from which all the health benefits are ultimately derived.


Intermediate Tai Chi with Master Sean Boutin
Tuesday and Thursday 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Intermediate Tai Chi invests the skill developed in Tai Chi Basics into stylized sequences of movements called “Forms.” As a group, we will learn two Forms, the very symmetrical “Gate of Life” and the flowing and energizing “Simplified 24”. Our practice alternates between these forms in order to focus the mind and balance the body. ****Occasionally, advanced elements from the 48 or 108 forms are introduced to augment the practice.**** This class cultivates skill while preserving the playfulness that permeates practice at North Country Tai Chi LLC.


Semester System

The fee for Tai Chi instruction is collected as a tuition each semester and is based on a rate of $10 per class multiplied by the number of meetings. For Example: 2020 Spring/Summer Semester (30 meetings X $10 per hour) = $300 Total Tuition.

Method of Payment:  We currently accept a cash payment or personal check. Please make any check payable to North Country Tai Chi LLC. Payment is due in full at the start of each semester.

Students normally join our academy by enrolling in a class at the beginning of a semester, however talk to Sean if you want to start Tai Chi sooner than the next semester, you might be able to work something out.
