Longwater Summer Workshops #1

This summer, in place of our annual 1 week retreat, we will be hosting 2 weekend workshops focusing on traditional Tai Chi (taijiquan) practices. This means that those of you who couldn't commit to the retreat in the past, due to time and financial constraints, would be able to enjoy some of the more advanced material we teach on such occasions. These two and a half day workshops will be linked in content, but taught in a way that will allow you to attend one, part of one or all of them to suit your schedule and budget. Knowledge of a Tai Chi form is a requirement for these workshops; and if you have begun studying the Yang 108 with us this April, this is a great opportunity to upgrade your form before the next workshop in the Autumn.

Each workshop will be based on solo hand form study, but will include an interactive component where we will work with partners. Drop in rates are available for the Friday afternoon (solo) and Sunday morning (partner) sessions.

Solo Topic

The 3 external combinations. It is important for all good Tai Chi to be aware that the feet, hands, knee, elbow, hip and shoulder should connect to inform our movement. Making the most of these dynamic physical connections will help us understand better how direct and manage and support our Yi or intent as we move through our form.

Partner Topic

5 energies in the stance continuum. In the process of dealing with a partners push, we must be clear in our ability to stick, listen, comprehend, receive and neutralise. All of this must also occur within the structure of the stance, where we advance, retreat, gaze left, look right and centre.
