Tai Chi Essence & Tai Chi Short Form Intensive
Saturday Tai Chi Essence 10.00am – 4.00pm £40
Tai Chi Essence offers you, perhaps the most profound, solid experience of learning Tai Chi. In these workshops you learn Tai Chi by concentrating on just a few key moves that contain everything you need to know. There are no long sequences, just key moves and processes –
Angus’s approach to learning and teaching Tai Chi is built around 5 Key Processes. These are: Freeing; Aligning; Focusing; Sensing and Being.

It’s by working with these processes that you gain an understanding and fluency that gives your tai chi the chance to emerge.
You can come to one/one-off workshops where you will learn enough to keep you going for months. Or you can attend the whole series, which then becomes more like a developmental training program.
If you are a novice to Tai Chi then Tai Chi Essence will give you a strong grounding. If you are experienced already, then these workshops will deepen you practice considerably.
Sunday Tai Chi Short Form Intensive 10.00am – 1.00pm £25
The Tai Chi Form is at the heart of the movement practice that is Tai Chi.
It’s where you release unwanted tensions, develop strength in your legs and flexibility in your body.
You learn to move with poise, grace and balance; you learn about body alignment and frame extension; postural integration and whole body energy; how to release particular muscle groups and the unwanted tensions that may be held there; how to use minimum effort for maximum efficiency; how to bring your body and your mind together.
If you are familiar with parts of or the complete Dr. Chi/Cheng Man Ching Short Form then you are most welcome to come to a study day or two. It’s guaranteed to take you and your practice further.
In the workshops any parts of the tai chi form sequence may be studied and worked using posture sequence, principles of movement and awareness and often with reference to application to life and application as a set martial art move or posture.
Angus’s books and DVDs give extremely good resource material for the study of the tai chi form. You can view these at the following address:
