Tai Chi & instruments
CEU: RME - ASCA. Harmony Style Tai Chi is a Taoist distillation of the popular Yang, Chen and Wu styles of Tai Chi Chuan and embodies the same natural principles found in the Tao Teh Ching. Among its many benefits, the gently circular movement of Tai Chi deeply activates Qi and blood circulation in all joints, enhances balance and gathers energy. Four levels + Sword or Staff.
CEU: RME - ASCA. Taoist meditation styles, from deep breathing to visualisation, whether sitting, standing, or lying down, are rooted in the essential practice of inner quietude. A Taoist meditation class, usually tailored to a particular context, explores one or two styles at a time in order to guard simplicity of focus.
