Tai Chi Chuan

Master your internal focus, let the body flow with ease

Welcome !

This Spark (Beginners) course will give you a systematic introduction to Tai Chi Chuan, so you can decide if this is a practice you'd like to add to your daily routines. Tai Chi is a wonderful practice that allows the practitioner to develop good coordination, improves balance, calms the mind and increases energy. It is especially nice option for those who find it difficult to be still and focus during a typical meditation. 

Please consult with a physician before starting any exercise program. All exercise programs have a possibility of physical injury. 
If you choose to engage in this exercise program, you acknowledge that you will do your best to focus and listen to your body and that you take full responsibility for your practice and any potential injury. Please be patient with yourself and enjoy your practice.

Course Summary

Two different techniques or practices will be introduced each day and you are more than welcome to pace your practice according to your learning capabilities or the time you have, to devote to your practice.
We'll begin with external practice, then delve into the internal work and eventually combine the two. 

Practice with end result in mind

Here is an example of the Tai Chi form you can learn in our next (Ignite) Tai Chi program. You will learn a few of these moves in this Spark program to get the basic movement first, before you launch into the next program. Also, keep in mind that the camera can only of course capture the external movement, not the internal. To move the body with high level of grace and flow, one needs to understand and practice the internal movement, which will be further explained in the videos.

About the Instructor

Born and raised in Slovakia, I left my family home at the age of 21 to learn English in the UK. Came to Colorado at the age of 26. Physical movement and martial arts were always so much fun for me and although I didn't learn easily or quickly, but once I understood the movement while deepening my focus, I was able to retain what I learned. I later noticed I really enjoyed explaining the movement I learned and decided to start teaching classes. I started teaching Kung Fu and Kickboxing in 2006 and incorporated Eclectic Ground in 2012. I spent a month in Wudang Kung Fu Academy in China where I studied Kung Fu, Tai Chi and Chi Gong and later received a "Sifu" (Master) certificate from Ving Tsun Athletic Association in Hong Kong after a few years of progressing through my Wing Chun Kung Fu studies under my Master Keith Worfel of Denver Wing Chun (late grandmaster Ip Ching lineage). I have also studied with a few other Tai Chi & Chi Kung masters (like master Adam Mizner or master Mark Rasmus) where I gained deeper insights into the internal power (Chi).

My long term goal is to create a community of individuals who are interested to learn to know themselves through internal energy practices, martial arts and its principles, through re-training the mind and healing the heart with self empowerment exercises, in order to help each individual to find their path and fulfill their dharma. This is a self-sustaining community, where we find common interest in keeping our bodies healthy as we age, our mind sharp and our heart open with compassion and gratitude. A community of individuals curious about life, how the world works and how we redefine this world or ourselves in it and create a new reality from place of curiosity, respect and love.
