hello to all my existing students and those who are going to join when the Tai Chi Chuan & Meditation courses start up again as of 28th September !
There is a lot of information to take in for this new 2020-2021 Season, so find a comfortable place and take the time to read this message to the end.
I hope that you all had a great Summer and that those of you who are still in the mountains or on the road, or wherever you may be, will profit from the current beautiful sunny days.
Thanks for all the photos you sent me from the seaside or the mountains – stuff that dreams are made of.
For us it was a productive Summer. We finished all the work and interior decoration of Powerspot, our new location. You will find all the new information on the website. We have organised everything to make everything welcoming and secure for you.
For the Tai Chi Chuan classes and the Meditation workshops, masks are mandatory in the public areas of Powerspot. Hands must be washed before and after practice. Antiseptic gel and soap are provided.
Masks do not have to be worn during practice, unless you so wish. This applies to Powerspot or the parc des Bruyères or the Paris venue.
For Meditation workshops, please bring a cover (towel, pareo etc.) to put on the Powerspot floor -mat or cushion which you will be using.
This year, there is a possibility for students to follow the Tai Chi Chuan Tuesday classes (Advanced & Intermediate) by ZOOM.
If you are interested, please let me know.
For those coming for the first time, all the information concerning Tai Chi Chuan or meditation garments can be found on the ShanShui website.
If you want to do a trial practice of Tai Chi Chuan, please come to a class of your choice Monday evening or Wednesday morning. Times and place of Beginners classes are on the website.
There is new Tai Chi Chuan information on the website about the Form and the Knife :
following the lock-down, there is the link to the lst part of the Form and now also a link to the 2nd part with the names of each movement.
Take time to watch and then to practise. By patience you will progress whatever your level.
For Advanced students, I have put the Knife form with photos movement by movement so that you can see each movement of the form broken down : Link to the Knife.
Soon there will be a video version. I have done a slow demonstration to help you practise with precision and so refine your style.
Sign-ups and payments can now be done via the ShanShui site for Tai Chi Chuan classes and intensive courses, as well as for the Meditation Workshops and the licence.
Please sign-up & pay via the link in September whether for Powerspot, parc des Bruyère or Paris.
