TAI CHI / PUSH HANDS WORKSHOP 29 January 2017

Workshops are a wonderful opportunity to set aside an afternoon for focusing on yourself and your practice. The first workshop of 2017--and the first workshop of the new Rooster Year!--will take place on the 29th of January.

This workshop is only open to current Tai Chi students who have completed learning the Tai Chi set. Details below. 



TAI CHI / PUSH HANDS WORKSHOP
Sunday, January 29, 2017
1-5pm
Regent Health Centre Studio
Fee: $60

This workshop will focus on Push Hands and the Tai Chi set.

Push Hands is both a partner exercise, and the sparring form associated with Tai Chi and other internal martial arts. Learning Push Hands is absolutely key to understanding correct Tai Chi movement, as well as the art of dealing with another person's force, and energy. Practicing Push Hands can enormously benefit self confidence, deepen your practice, and teach you how to tell when your technique is correct, and when it needs adjustment. It moves chi, or energy, like no other discipline we study. At its best, it is deeply invigorating and uplifting, and can help the practitioner conquer common fears, and inspire new approaches to daily challenges.

This workshop will help participants master Push Hands fundamentals, and include instruction on how Push Hands practice relates to Tai Chi technique. We will also be working with Qigong sitting meditation, in order to integrate the body and energy changes that accompany Push Hands.

Participants must have completed Beginner's Tai Chi and be familiar with the Tai Chi set. To register, contact Melissa at smithmk2@gmail.com or (905) 521-0043.
