Qi Gong & TCM Retreat, Level 1

3 – 8 December 2017
 Taijiquan Retreat, Level 1

 

Taijiquan

In the Taiji Retreat, we study and practice the form, or choreography, of the authentic Yang style. Qigong exercises are additionally practiced for warm-up, strength, coordination, and agility.

Contents

 

In four days, we will cover either Part I of the form (Earth), or the first or second half of Part II (Sky) (including script) The first part is somewhat easier than the second, but in principle we could start with Part II as well.

 

Clothing

Comfortable, breathable loose cotton clothing; barefoot or in socks, or shoes with a flat, thin sole. Windows are often kept open during practice, so be sure to dress warmly enough and always have socks, a sweater and a scarf or shawl with you just in case.

TCM & Qigong

In the TCM and Qigong Retreat, the essence of Traditional Chinese Medicine is explained. Each day, new Qigong exercises are taught, along with knowledge about the principles of the Chinese Five Element Diet, and of living a happy, long life in harmony with nature.
