Longwater Workshops

It can be very beneficial to immerse yourself in a subject; to give yourself more time to absorb an intricate flow of thought or feeling. Longwater Tai Chi provides weekend workshops in two formats, to suit your available time:

  • half day (typically 3 hours)
  • full day (5-6 hours incl. time off for lunch)

Wu/Yang Style 108 Workshop - Downton

Fri 19th Jul 2019 6:30 pm - Sun 21st Jul 2019 4:00 pm
£120.00
Wu/Yang Style 108 Workshop - Downton

If you are serious in your pursuit of Tai Chi (taijiquan) knowledge, understanding lineages becomes important, and making connections between your Wu style form and its mother form can be enlightening. All authentic taijiquan adheres to the same physical principles and manifestations of jing (energetic essence) irrespective of the style of form.

In this unique full-immersion workshop we will start with reviewing the Wu 108 long form for all students who have studied it and wish to have a refresher course. Then from within this structure we introduce the Yang mother form and highlight certain moves to show the differences that distinguish the 2 forms, but also the similarity of the internal work that makes them the same.

Please check the details page to see if this workshop is suitable for you.

Friday evening 6.30pm - 9pm
Sat/Sun Full Day 10am to 4pm (inc 45 min lunch break)

Cost £120 

Let us know if you can't manage the whole weekend - we may be able to offer you a discount for part-attendance.

Five Seasons Qigong: Summer's Joyful Opening

We continue our popular series of 'immersion' weekend workshops that span the year and its seasons. Discover and embody ancient practices that were created to naturally resonate with the energies of the Earth through its annual cycle.

With the Fire element of summer comes the desire to enjoy the sun and spend time outside, and the heart organ opens in joy and compassion. Keeping the solar plexus and midriff open and constantly moving the shoulder blades during Tai Chi, Nei Gung and Qigong is very important to the heart's health.

Workshop content is largely dependent on the group dynamic and should only be used as a guide to what we may teach.

Suitable for all, including beginners.

Sat (10am to 4.30pm) / Sun (10am to 1pm).
Cost £70 for both days / £35 for the Sat Morning session only.

Five Seasons Qigong: Late Summer Integration

We continue our popular series of 'immersion' weekend workshops that span the year and its seasons. Discover and embody ancient practices that were created to naturally resonate with the energies of the Earth through its annual cycle. This year we will present the Late Summer Qigong workshop during our annual Tai Chi retreat at Eaton Manor in beautiful Shropshire.

The 'Chinese Element' predominant in Late Summer is 'Earth', which is also the element of transition for all of the season changes throughout the year. A key focus of this workshop will be on using and integrating Earth energy into mindful movement, to centre, stabilise and to stay in balance through transition.

Sat (10am to 4.30pm) / Sun (10am to 1pm). Cost £70 for both days / £40 for the Sat Morning session only.

On Sunday we offer an in-depth workshop where you can deepen your study, as well as review and practice what we learn on the Saturday - see details. You do not have to attend this session but it is included in the price.
