Please ask about concessions
This level builds internal awareness.
It revisits the whole of Beginners level form with a focus on self-observation, and on making changes which allow you to truly embody the principles of Tai Chi in your personal practice of the form.
*Class is provisional depending on demand
This level deepens the meditation.
It makes minor refinements to smooth out the transitions between individual postures. The form then becomes one continuous flow - an exchange of Yin and Yang that is like simply breathing.
Sensing (Push) Hands
This level is a practice for real life.
Also described as "Push Hands", this pairs practice teaches us how we can stay relaxed in contact with others. We connect, listen and respond to them, without feeling anxious or threatened.
**Price increase to £120 from September 2023
