Tai Chi Chuan means "supreme ultimate fist" and is the most popular of the three hundred Chinese martial arts known as Wushu. Tai Chi is its medicinal parallel. Learning Tai Chi begins with the mastering of external balance before moving inwards. The idea is to repeat a coordinated sequence of movements and in so doing, correct posture, improve belly breathing, increase flexibility, and center the mind.
The legs ground the body and provide balance while energy from the earth enters the feet before flowing upwards where it is focused in the Tan Ti'en. This energy is then directed up through the waist, chest, and arms to the hands. Tai Chi practitioners remain relaxed while moving so that energy can flow without obstruction. Through breathing, you can rediscover and release powerful natural energies within yourself.
On this holiday, your Tai Chi teacher will be dedicated to helping you ground yourself as well as develop equilibrium and harmony. In this small group, you will be guided through a personalized Tai Chi practice including chakra activating and rejuvenating exercises, that you can take home with you for grounding, balance, and continued spiritual growth.
With the carefully prepared organic fresh delicious food and smoothies, your body will begin to cleanse, detox, and heal. Being in an environment that supports that energetic shift in your body will help you stay on track, even when you get home.

The holiday will take place in Almunecar, Granada, Spain. You can enjoy traditional Spain with its small charming fishing villages and white mountain villages. The region dates back to the Phoenician settlers and the strong heritage of both Romans and Ottoman Empire can still be seen today. The whole area has a wealth of cultural attractions including the nearby Moorish castle as well as Roman aqueducts and remains.
Granada and the world famous Alhambra is a one-hour drive away as well as the beautiful mountain villages of the Alpujarras. The stretch of coastline is called the Costa Tropical because of the effects of a micro climate similar to a sub-tropical environment. Along much of the coastline, the mountains run right down to the beach forming a series of stunning headlands and protected coves and beaches.
During this holiday, three delicious healthy vegetarian meals included will be served every day.
