This monthly 2hr class on Saturdays creates the opportunity to study the Golden Flower Form in greater depth: we will focus on specific principles such as Yin/Yang, 3point alignment or Relaxation as well as working with specific training forms to deepen insight into the Tai Chi principles and their applications. The class includes warm-ups and Qi Gongs. We will work on and practise the whole form, so it is helpful to have some knowledge of at least the first section of the form.Tai Chi Retreat: 1st - 2nd Sept 2016 - Two Woods Estate, Pulborough

Beginning Tai Chi
The Golden Flower Form is a short form derived from the traditional Yang Style forms. It was first developed in order to make Tai Chi as accessible as possible. Although the method is simple, this offers everything you need to practice good Tai Chi. It has proven to be very popular as a beneficial introduction for most people. The movements of this form can be easily learned and the many benefits of Tai Chi can be realised within a short time. This allows the new student to gain a rapid sense of achievement and satisfaction, as well as being able to have a measure of their growth.
The Golden Flower Form is the first level of our teaching and provides a foundation for continued study. Students may wish to go on to learn the Long Form or other aspects of Tai Chi and related practices, in our Intermediate and Advanced classes.
We welcome students of all levels to our classes, whether you are just beginning or have been practising for many years. During the classes we will work with a number of aspects of Tai Chi, including the Golden Flower warm-up exercises, the Golden Flower form, moving and standing Chi Kung, pushing hands, and meditation. Our classes are relaxed, yet focused, in a friendly and informal atmosphere. You will also have the experience of Instructors who regularly train for their own ongoing development and to ensure the highest possible standard within the School. You will not need a special uniform, just loose comfortable clothing and soft flat footwear.
