Tai Chi Retreat – 6th to 8th October 2017

We will be having our next taiji retreat from a Friday to Sunday in October 2017 at Melody Hill in Magaliesburg.

2 night’s accommodation including all meals. You are welcome to arrive Friday after lunch. There will be a light supper that evening.

The first session will take place Saturday morn at 7:00, and we will end Sunday after lunch.

Bring straight swords; sunscreen; swim wear; walking shoes; hats, mozzie spray, torch. Meals are vegan. Please feel free to bring other snacks if you so wish.

Please note we need a minimum of 14 people to make this retreat happen, so we look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible! Total cost is R2035, and R1815 if our numbers are over 14 people.

Booking is essential, by paying in full (R2035) by the September to confirm your place!  (You will be refunded the difference if we exceed 14 people).

This retreat is tailored for the students who participate, and so will be for all levels of tai chi, from beginners to advanced.  The focus is on foundation building, on key concepts in tai chi, and on technique.  From this base Leo builds to the level of the group, including:

  • Beginners will get a strong foundation, further getting in touch with themselves and their bodies. Their  left and right hand co-ordination improves; developing more neural muscular signals and helping integrate mind and body.
  • Those with injuries, scoliosis, arthritic conditions will benefit from this retreat for therapeutic reasons, and learning the useful exercises.
  • And those more advanced in taiji, will improve their body alignment, perfect the foundation skills, aligning their technique with the correct breathing, and will gain refinement of their taiji moves, both mentally and physically.

Learn about tai chi and it’s many benefits, and the best way to learn tai chi, from Leo.  Talks are aimed at beginners, and held the last Saturday of every month, at 09:30 to 10:00 at Parktown Girls High –Tyrone Avenue, Parkview.  No cost, and RSVP preferable by contacting Leo on 0833780468.

Workshop on Tai Chi- Foundation Skills – TBC

We are having a taiji workshop on a Saturday (next date to be confirmed). It will commence at 9.30 till 12:30/13:00. There will be short breaks in between. The cost of the workshop is R180p/p.
Please wear comfortable clothing and bring hats, snacks if you wish, and something to drink. There will also be an urn setup for tea and coffee.

This workshop will be for all levels of tai chi, from beginners to advanced.

  • Beginners will get a strong foundation to develop their taiji practice from, as they are often not as in touch with themselves and their bodies. So they will gain from this workshop’s exercises an improvement in left and right hand co-ordination; improvement in neural muscular signals; better sleep; and a strong foundation for perfecting mind and body integration.
  • Those with injuries, scoliosis, arthritic conditions will benefit from this workshop for therapeutic reasons, and learning the useful exercises.
  • And those more advanced in taiji, will improve their body alignment, perfect the foundation skills, aligning their technique and breathing, and will gain refinement of their taiji moves, both mentally and physically.

Leo will need confirmation by way of upfront payment to secure your place. So email Sifu Leo (leoming at telkomsa dot net) for banking details and to register.
