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)
