About the retreat

Since 2015 Longwater Tai Chi has been running small one week retreats near Bergerac, France. Students spend a week together studying a particular topic, as well as enjoying a relaxing location with good company. Topics in the past have included:

2015 - basic alignments and connecting lower and upper body.

2016 - removing unnecessary adornments from your form.

2017 - how to be comfortable but connected; integrating 2015/16.

2018 - understanding the energies of Grasp Birds Tail; Yang family Baduanjin.

Teaching is typically 3 hours a day, with an additional voluntary 2 hours for warmups and guided practice. 

Everyone shares in cooking and most students have their own rooms (in Mussidan these are ensuite). Charges include training fees, accommodation, flights and transport, with food and drink managed separately on arrival (typically £100 for the week). 

In 2019 we move to the UK!
