Location

FangYuan Tai Chi Centre is located in a village of XinLingCun, Jiedong District, Jieyang City, Guangdong Province, China.

Jieyang city is the birthplace of Chaoshan culture and a historical and cultural city in Guangdong Province. Jieyang is a famous hometown of overseas Chinese. More than 3.2 million overseas Chinese calls this their hometown and there are more than 1.8 million returned overseas Chinese and their families.

The city is surrounded by mountains and seas, and there are many places of interest. The main tourist attractions include the Jieyang Confucius Temple, the Shuangfeng Temple, the Huangqishan Scenic Area, and the Lin Zexu Memorial Hall.

Food

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

The chef is a master of the work 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 which 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. Everybody sits around the same table to share the ingredients of a meal eaten in common. Eating in China is a social event, so that while you eat together, you share experiences from all walks of life, all ages, and every part of the world.

The following meals are included:

  • Breakfast
  • Lunch
