The Helston club will be hosting a day of T’ai Chi on Saturday 21st June at the Old Cattle Market in Helston.

The course is from 10am to 5pm with lunch 1-2pm, tea will be available bring a packed lunch or there is a cafe at the boating lake nearby.

The cost is £40 for the day.

This course is suitable for beginners and advanced students and is recommended for all the students attending our clubs in West Cornwall. It’s a chance for you to go over your forms and exercises in much more depth and also meet up with some of the other students in the local area. We will be starting with some gentle warming up exercises and then some Chi Gung to open the energy meridian pathways followed by our Tiaowu 跳舞 or T’ai Chi dance which is a light and flowing sequence of movements based on the five elements or Wu Xing 五行. We will also be doing some partner exercises to teach you the difference between physical strength, chi or internal energy and Li which is external or macro-cosmic energy. We will also be practising the T’ai Chi form which is a set of moving meditation sequences. If you want to practise some of the forms at home you can copy them from the youtube videos on this link.
