Tai Chi Beginners Holidays in Thailand : December 2016 & January 2017
Location: Island Yoga, Koh Yao Noi, Thailand
Taught by Anthony Fidler
Dates : Dec 26th 2016 - Jan 6th 2017 & Jan 9th - Jan 20th 2017
Timing : 7-8am & 5-6pm Mon-Fri
Class Size: 6-8 Students Only!
These two Tai Chi holidays each offer 10 days of morning and evening guided Tai Chi sessions of about an hour each. We usually have time for some discussion afterwards as well.
From my experience, this is enough basic contact time for students to progress well while learning on a daily basis.
I expect students to practice by themselves each day as well and if required students can book additional 1-1 classes with me, which can be very useful.
This schedule leaves plenty of time each day for enjoying the beautiful island as well as a free weekend mid course to chill out or participate in other workshops. Koh Yao Noi is a superb setting to relax and do nothing and this time is also important on a retreat like this!
I want to offer personalized teaching and so the class size will be limited to 6-8 students. This is very important for learning Tai Chi well.
We will train mostly in the gardens of Thakhao Bungalow Resort. With the islands of Phang Nga Bay in view out to sea, this has to be one of the most amazing settings to practice Tai Chi in the World!
We may also go out on to some of the sand spits in the bay if we want, which is also beautiful.
- The Taoist Ba Duan Jin Qi Gong
- Spiral Qi Gong Silk Reeling
- The Foundations of Tai Chi Natural Tao Movement
- A short Tai Chi Form (Tai Chi 6, 12 or 24) derived from Yang 24 in Traditional Small Circle Style
The goal of these retreats is provide a high quality introduction to the Tao centred movement system of Tai Chi.
Participants will be able to take away useful tools to build a short personal daily practice of their own, possibly as a complement to an existing yoga practice.
Traditional Small Circle Tai Chi is incredibly gentle, with more emphasis placed on the yin aspects of Tai Chi than the larger frame Tai Chi systems.
It is ideal for facilitating deeper relaxation and nourishing inner vitality and so is ideal as a way to strengthen one's health.
I would encourage students to book into Baan Thakhao Bungalow Resort where we will do the Tai Chi. It may be possible to stay at the resort next door as well: Koh Yao Seaview.
Nb. Baan Thakhao's website doesn't do the location justice, it is beautiful!
