From my experience, 2 hours a day is enough basic contact time for students to progress well while learning on a daily basis.

Obviously in terms of form and quality, studying for two or three weeks will provide more chance to learn well, but one week can be sufficient to get you started in your Tai Chi / Qi Gong journey.

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 5 students. This is very important for learning Tai Chi well. Some practices will be done all together as a group, others will be taught individually.

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.

Syllabus :

  • 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.

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!
