Event description

Description

Join senior Tai Chi teacher Li Ho 文莉 for this premier course combining Chen Style Tai Chi (陳氏太極拳) with Baduanjin Qigong (八段錦). Over the course of 10 hour-long lessons for beginners, students will learn the foundation movements of Chen Style, consisting of 'Silk Reeling'. Silk Reeling is a set of repetitive spiral movements with the arms and hands, with alternating fast/slow motion and bursts of power. The Chen Style Tai Chi 11 form is a simplified form based on authentic Chen Style Tai Chi Old Frame or Laojia. Students will also become familiar with the 8 movements, or Pieces of Brocade, of Baduanjin Qigong. Baduanjin is one of the most common forms of Chinese Qigong used as exercise and is primarily designated as a form of medical Qigong, meant to improve health. The name of the form generally refers to how the eight individual movements of the form characterize and impart a silken quality (like that of a piece of brocade) to the body.

This course is for health and exercise purposes and does not include combat. Please note however, that Tai Chi is a martial art and students should expect physically rigorous exercise during the course. If you have a physical disability or have suffered an injury which impedes flexibility and movement please seek advice from your doctor before reserving a place on the course. For more information see our Terms & Conditions under the 'About' tab.
