Program

T’ai chi ch’uan or Taijiquan, often shortened to t’ai chi, taiji or tai chi in English usage, is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. It is also typically practiced for a variety of other personal reasons: its hard and soft martial art technique, demonstration competitions, and longevity.

As a result, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims. Some of t’ai chi ch’uan’s training forms are especially known for being practiced at what most people categorize as slow movement.

In this four weeks program, students will have class from Monday to Friday. There will be no lessons on the weekend, students can have their own plans.

The daily schedule is as follows:

  • 07:30 - 08:30 Breakfast
  • 09:30 - 11:30 Morning training
  • 12:00 - 13:00 Lunch
  • 15:00 - 17:00 Afternoon training
  • 18:00 - 19:00 Dinner

Food

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.

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. Everybody sits around the same table to share the ingredients of a meal eaten in common.
