Tai Chi Retreats

Have you ever dreamed of going on a Tai Chi retreat, or ever wondered if a Tai Chi retreat is for you?

There is a huge difference between going on holiday and going on retreat. Even the word “retreat” itself tells us that it’s all about stepping back, going inwards and treating yourself to some time out.

“The purpose of a Tai Chi Retreat is to enable you, first and foremost, to learn a lot about Tai Chi and to thoroughly understand the basics in a short space of time and of course to enjoy some time out”

If you are a beginner you will immerse yourself in the world of Tai Chi Ch’uan and learn the basics, some key Tai Chi principles and a new form.

For the more experienced practitioner you will review and perhaps polish your existing Tai Chi skills and if you wish, you will learn more about the advanced routines like Chen style silk reeling, Push-hands or one of the Iron Shirt Qi Gong techniques.

For the experienced martial artist, you will learn more about the connection between Tai Chi Ch’uan and martial arts applications and self-defence techniques or a more advance routine like Chen style silk reeling, Push-hands or one of the Iron Shirt Qi Gong techniques.

All the Retreats are structured to suit you to enable you take time out while learning at your own pace. Through focused intensive training you will also learn more about incorporating the Tai Chi principles and concepts into your daily life.

All Retreats are run by me and all the Tai Chi and Qi Gong teaching is carried out by me.

All instruction is in English or German.

All Retreats while structured are also tailored to suit the individual/group attending the Retreat.
