Welcome to Tai Ji Circle’s Three Day Whitsun Tai Chi training Seminar with Shifu Liu Quanjun.
Relax, don’t worry and enjoy!

This is an important workshop for all levels of qi gong and taiji practitioner with an emphasis on Nei Gong, or internal training which is an essential aspect of qi gong and taiji practice. During this three day workshop, Shifu Liu wishes his students to build and feel the movement and flow of internal energy, as well as improving our posture, coordination and balance. All the training, especially the Qi Gong practice with sounds and movement will support the internal organs, in particular the ‘wood’ element which corresponds to the liver, and the Spring season. This will help us to prepare for the ‘fire’ element of the Summer as we change seasons.

Morning Qi Gong Sessions
The morning sessions will cover different aspects of Da Bei Qi Gong training, starting at the introductory level and building on nei gong practice over the three days to take in the moving Da Bei Qi Gong form and working with Da Bei Healing sounds for the internal organs.

Afternoon Taijiquan Sessions
To enhance and deepen our practice we will be working on all Chen Foundation training with forms practice during the afternoons, including Standing Post, all the Silk Reeling standing and stepping variations built up over the three days, with the Four Direction short Form. On the last afternoon we will be doing the 19 Form with martial applications.

Everyone is welcome.

There will be regular refreshment breaks between sessions.
