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

Five Seasons Qigong: Spring Growth and Gentle Extension

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.

Like its element Wood, the Spring season brings the opportunity of growth and gentle extension. The liver and gall bladder come into focus, enabling you to move towards that which you have set your heart on. When these organs are unhealthy it makes us short tempered and angry. Anger arises when we are prevented from doing what we want to do. A healthy liver can help us to respond more calmly to obstacles in our path; to smoothly adapt and change rather than getting stuck.

So this is the time to return to activity, after having 'hibernated' over winter; dispelling the stiffness and irritations we may have accumulated during the cold and dark months. The nourishing energy that we have been storing can now be used and enjoyed.

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

Wu/Yang Style 108 Workshop - Downton

Fri 19th Jul 2019 6:30 am - 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.
