Swiss Cottage

About the course:

We concentrate on learning the Beijing 24-step Short Form, which provides an ideal and relatively quick way to acquire basic Taiji skills.

Our students learn a variety of easy but highly effective Qi Gong exercises, from the famous "8 Pieces of Silk Brocade" and Zhan Zhuang sequences among others. These sequences help to improve health and develop awareness of the body's energy.

We also use, in combination, three very simple and highly enjoyable partner exercises, Sticking, Yielding and Centring, to develop balance, co-ordination, spacial awareness and sensitivity.

Warm-up and conditioning exercises, basic stepping exercises, and the basics of stance and body-mechanics, complete the overall picture to give a well-rounded and satisfying introduction to Taiji.
