This is the best introduction to Tai-Chi that I have seen. I have done a few intro classes, and they never explain the movements in such detail. I also really appreciate the practical aspect demonstration. I hope that you will continue to build on this introduction. It is wonderful!

Absolutely LOVED this class! Thank you, Gabriel! And welcome! I have wanted to add Tai-Chi into my practice for so long and am so grateful to have had the opportunity to start with this class. I also thought the pace was perfect for staying very present through the descriptions and really feeling the reward of letting go of muscle tension! I hope to enjoy many more of your classes in the future!

More please! I could feel a difference in my body as I completed part one. I’m moving on to the next two parts and hope to find additional sessions with more variations on Tai Chi. I think these compliment my yoga practice.

That was a great intro to Tai Chi and I totally enjoyed it. Gabriel explained the movements very well and I finished day three wanting more!
Many thanks for this opportunity and I look forward to more from Gabriel in the future.

Thank you Gabriel for this wonderful, informative class. I am grateful to you for all of the reminders of how to relax the body with each movement and your clear instructions. This has been my first Tai Chi experience and I look forward to many more!

I have always wanted to try Tai-Chi and this was an accessible, enjoyable start! Gabriel explained the movements in a clear way and his continual reminders to relax, not grip, and allow freedom of movement helped me understand a bit about the principles involved in Tai-Chi. Looking forward to the next video! Is there a way to favorite/save this video to my collection?
