Event description

Description

This class will teach and practice the basic techniques of Tai Chi helping students to relax the mind and body, also develop the ability to experience energy flow through their body. This is an ongoing class and everybody is wellcome to join when it suits them most.

Unlike most forms of exercise and sport, Tai Chi doesnt rely on strength, force and speed, which makes it ideal for everyone young and old, strong or not.

The first element focuses on bringing the energy Chi to the Tan Tien point in the abdomen just below the navel (your center). We do this through Chi Kung at the start of every class. Chi kung or Qi gong literally means Qi cultivation so It quietens the mind and relaxes the body.

The second element is the Tai Chi Chuan form, which circulates the Qi through the body. This what most people mean when they think of Tai Chi the moving sequence of postures that is so attractive to watch.

The third element is the application of Qi in partner exercises known as Gau Sau, or exchange of hands, to experience Tai Chi Principles in practice. It is a chance for both parties to help each other refine movements and postures and gain better insight and understanding of applied energy. This third element will be introduced once some progress has been made on the 2 previous elements.

Of the thousands of people who take up Tai Chi, only a few will actually develop enough skill to teach, and fewer still have the ability to truly demonstrate the Tai Chi principles, expressing Tai Chis legendary softness. Master Ding is fully committed to transmitting this art to those who continue to work and improve the quality of their Tai Chi. All MDAs instructors are regularly assessed to ensure that they maintain the high standard expected. Further, Master Ding is accessible to students and instructors through workshops, seminars and retreats.
