Taijiquan (tai chi chuan) is a system of serene, flowing movements originally based on martial arts and used by millions of people around the world as a graceful, meditative exercise. Qigong is an ancient mind-body system for cultivating our natural energy and spirit. Regular practice of these contemplative arts promotes health, strength, confidence, longevity, calmness, and peace of mind. Tai chi’s interactive partner practices also support flexible, healthy boundaries and conscious relationships.
Join us for this refreshing, revitalizing exploration of traditional solo and partner practices emphasizing the fundamental principles of taiji and qigong as contemplative experience. This retreat is designed to give beginning and returning students alike a solid foundation upon which to continue their enjoyment of these wonderful exercises.
