Classes are taught by Terry Collins and his assistants. Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing and try to arrive 5 minutes early. Classes begin with a light warm-up followed by instruction in the form.
Learning TaiJi begins by following a series of gentle movements, and increasing relaxation. Each week, new movements are added to the form, each new movement brings new discoveries. Over time, the body and mind reach new levels of balance and agility. The form taught at TaiJi Union is Professor Cheng's 37-movement short form.
Once students have completed learning the form, they may move on to Corrections class, Push Hands (the two-person exercise of TaiJi), or weapons forms, such as Sword.
