Cornwall Tai Chi will be hosting a day of T’ai Chi at the Heartlands Hall on
Saturday 7th March 2020 from 10am to 5pm (lunch 1-2pm)
The cost will be £45 (£40 if you book in advance/ £25 half day)

  • 10am – Warming up. We perform a special sequence of exercises that loosen the joints and gently stimulate the muscles and tendons.
  • 11:30am – Tea break, tea will be available
  • 11:45am – Partner work. Learning how to overcome stress is one of the most important factors in learning to relax and promote the free-flowing of energy in the body. Stress burns up too much energy and causes the body to age too quickly so we take practical steps to deal with it through partner exercises like sticky hands. You make contact with your partner’s arms and move in a circular fashion gently testing each other’s balance. With practice you learn how to relax and not tense when someone is pushing you, this skill can then be transferred into a host of other situations including self-defence training.
  • 1-2pm – Lunch break. Bring a packed lunch or you can go to the nearby Red River Cafe.
  • 2-3:30pm – Qigong exercises and energy exercises in pairs.
  • 3:30pm – Afternoon tea break.
  • 3:45-5pm – T’ai Chi form. A meditative sequence of slow movements.

You can see some videos of our courses and classes and the various exercises we learn in T’ai Chi on our Youtube channel.
