Yang Style Tai Chi

Yang Style

For those looking to practice taiji at a more active or recreational level the 5 section taijjiquan curriculum created by Master Sam Masich is ideal as it introduces the art in a principled way. If practitioners are eager for partner work they might play with the two person forms combined with sensing-hands and sensing-sword work. For those nervous about partner forms or who have had bad experiences with taiji push-hands, the jue-shou approach to connection and movement-through-relaxation can be perfect for breaking down barriers.

Classes and workshops run throughout the year, except on bank holidays and special times like Easter, August holidays and Christmas. Check our home page for the latest information on when we are not teaching.

Yang Style 108 Workshop - Downton

Currently all workshops are suspended - this is for information only. You can register your interest without payment so we have your details recorded.

For the first time, we will begin teaching the traditional Yang style long form (108), which we started to introduce during our very successful Wu 108 workshop last July. The traditional Yang-style 108 movement bare-hand Taiji routine is what started the modern Taijiquan revolution. This is a chance look at key sequences, movement intent and application.

This 2 day workshop introduces you to the principles of Tai Chi (Taiji) movement and begins the study of the long form; future workshops will be in a one or two day format and held every 4-6 weeks, and the study is likely to take several sessions to complete, depending on student ability. 

Sat/Sun Full Day 10am to 4pm (inc lunch break)

Special weekend price £96. A £16 deposit is required to secure your place.
