Prague Taiji Residential dates for 2020!!

The Residential will be split into two parts;

  • REGULAR RESIDENTIALSaturday 4th July – Thursday 9th July (Six full days)
  • PARTNER WORK RESIDENTIALSaturday 11th July – Wednesday 15th July (Five full days)

Coming from our experience of park training in the last eight years, we want to offer a space for training based on following, exploring and playing with whatever comes alive for every student. Thus allowing the body to learn through experience not only through intellectual understanding.

Through this type of training, students can progress by allowing the time and space for the principles to develop within.

The only prerequisite to attending is an open attitude. Beginners are Welcome!

Taiji Food – Free eBook from our Italian Chef!!

Taiji Food ImageThose that participated in the recent Prague Summer Taiji Residential training were extremely fortunate to have the experience of letting our Italian Chef, Stefania, play with the balance of our taste buds!

Every morning, midway through the 3.5 hour training session, Stefania would unveil another “Snack Masterpiece”. Not only were the snacks delicious but very healthy too…from exquisite hummus to succulent cakes mmmm…I think people must have been more interested in coming for the food than the training.

The exciting news is that Stefania has created a wonderful little book, Taiji Food, detailing all 31 of the recipes she created over the Residential, and thanks to her generosity its completely Free!!!..
