Simplified Tai Chi with Andrea Siqueira
Spring 2019 Eight Week Sessions
Learn more about instructor, Andrea
Chi Running and Walking got me curious to learn Tai Chi and I was very inspired by my Chi running coach Angela James from Vancouver that introduced me to the sequences of the Tai Chi practice. I was thrilled when Tai Chi classes were being offered in Okotoks through our Town programs. October 2017 is when I started my Tai Chi practice on weekly basis and I was progressing through the sequences with a relatively good pace. I felt very present in the practice, it truly is meditation in motion and I could see how beneficial this practice can be for my mental health. Here I was connecting the dots, my Kindermusik program, Chi Running and Walking practice and coaching, and now the Tai Chi practice.
Christmas of 2017, I received an email from Jane Sponiar my Tai Chi instructor inquiring if I would be interested in teaching Simplified Tai Chi! I was taken aback as I was just starting to learn Tai Chi myself. However, Jane mentioned that she would offer this to me as I was already teaching Chi Running and also being a Kindermusik Educator and I have the teaching background necessary to teach the Simplified version of Tai Chi. I was deeply honored and accepted the challenge with open arms as I was thrilled that my instructor believed in me and my ability.
I feel so blessed to have learned so much in the last year and a half. Truly it has been a time of evolving and changing, a process of self-discovery of sorts, physically, mentally and spiritually. I hope to continue the process of discovering the chi within me as I nurture and help others to discover the chi within them.
♥ Much peace, happiness and lots of LOVE! ♥
