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.
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. Warm-up with qigong exercises before we develop and practice the choreography of Part 1 of the authentic Yang-style form as a group. The meditative aspects of this form of movement are explored, as well as the principles of opening and closing the yin and yang.
