The Tibetan White Swan
This form of Tai Chi has 27 Moves and is a series of gentle movements that help to improve memory and balance. Pomona taught Tibetan White Swan moves with grace and agility as she told a story of the journey through life. This is an excellent introduction to Tai Chi. The class has concluded, but you may still practice the moves by watching Tibetan White Swan video.

Ann and Althea will host a new Tibetan Swan class. Watch this space for updates.
