It is a standing/moving exercise that can be done anywhere, anytime and doesn’t need special clothing or shoes.

Judyth Weaver received permission to teach TCC from the school of Grand Master Cheng Man-Ch’ing in 1971, and she has been teaching it regularly around the world since then.

The class will start on March 6 and will be offered on Wednesdays, from 11 am till noon in the Om Studio. (PLEASE NOTE – NEW DAY of the week AND new TIME!)

The classes are free. Donations to the CISS are welcome.
