Fall Online Intensive 2020



Fall Online Intensive: Sept 12, Oct 3-4 & Oct 24

Generating Qi Energy 

Through Movement and Meditation


You are invited to join us for our fall intensive online tai chi study program, suitable for all levels, beginners to advanced. The goal is to enhance your internal relaxation and mindfulness and make tai chi more present in your daily life.


The Fall Online Intensive (FOI) program includes two classic TCF teachings:

The Eight Ways of Tai Chi ChuanTM

  • Using imagery to embody Tai Chi movement. CLICK HERE to learn more about Eight Ways of Tai Chi Chuan.

Roots & Branches 5 Element QiGongTM

    • Exploring the 5 elements with Qigong, self-massage, and discussion. CLICK HERE to learn more about Roots & Branches 5 Element Qigong.

Our Summer Online Intensive (SOI) program covered four of the Eight Ways of Tai Chi Chuan, and three (Water, Wood, Fire) of the five elements that make up Roots and Branches 5 Element Qigong. The Fall Online Intensive (FOI) sessions complete these two programs. 

You can also join the new sessions without having attended the Summer Online Intensive (SOI). Access to the recordings of the SOI classes is included in your price.

When is it?

The dates for the three Fall Online Intensive (FOI) sessions are:

September 12: R&B Earth (2-hour class)

October 3 – 4: 8 Ways (2 days, 3 hours per day)

October 24: R&B Metal (2-hour class)


Roots and Branches 5 Element QigongTM

Each element corresponds to a season, so the classes have been programmed to take place during their season:

Earth Element – Late Summer – September 12

Metal Element – Fall / Autumn – October 24

Each class will focus on the element: its energy, movement, associated body systems, as well as include an introduction to a ‘tuning’ (a home practice done in concert with others across the globe) working with the energy of the season. The classes will meet from 12 – 2 EDT.


The Eight Ways of Tai Chi ChuanTM

This class will take place over a weekend, two days, for three hours each day for a total of six hours of classwork.

October 3 – 4 from 12:00 – 3:00 pm EDT 

It will cover a brief review of the first four Ways learned in the summer, and teach the remaining four Ways.

Recordings of all classes will be available if you cannot join the session live.


The price if you did not attend the SOI includes access to recorded classes for the first 4 Ways covered previously:

Full price:                   $ 170

TCF Member price:    $ 125


If you participated in the SOI and already learned the first 4 Ways:
