Each session will also to allow you to integrate the seasonal theme into your daily practice, using whatever Tai Chi or Qigong form or exercise routine you may know - irrespective of its origin.

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.
