Tai Chi, like Chinese medicine, is all about balance. Good health is maintained by, amongst other things, the ingredients which you take in as food, and the way in which you expend energy.

The chef is a master of the wok and adheres to these principles. Every day teachers and students enjoy a well-balanced diet cooked in the traditional Chinese style and made from ingredients that are sourced fresh every day from the local farmers’ market. Each meal contains a large choice of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes.

Food is not just important for its ingredients, but also for the way you eat, and in China, it is hard to imagine eating without sharing.
