Tai Chi Workshops – Sat 5th July

Our next workshops will be held this Saturday 5th July at the St Thomas Centre, Exeter.  All welcome, regardless of experience:

10.00am – 1.00pm Laojia and Xinjia Form Practice
This workshop provides an opportunity to train for an extended period of time and focus in greater depth on the postures and choreography of Tai Chi form.
2.15pm – 5.15pm Weapons Form Practice
The afternoon workshop will cover fan, straight sword, broad sword and spear forms. These forms introduce an increased level of complexity and dexterity to Tai Chi students.  They also develop, strong, open postures, improve balance and increase Mind Intent (Yi).  This in turn improves your empty hand forms.
Each workshop costs £20.

Gaining Skill…

Gaining Skill is the opposite of Gaining Fat; Fat is easy to gain and hard to lose; Skill is hard to acquire and easy to lose!

So, keep training hard!
