Prague Summer Taichi Residential – July 2014


P1070904Residential Finished for this year – Click on the new photos now!!

From July 1st to July 27th 2014, the Taiji School offers the Prague Summer Taichi Residential Training.

Coming from our experience of park training in the last three 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.

Students have the option of participating for as little or for as long as they want.

P1080781The only prerequisite to attending is an open attitude. Beginners are Welcome!

It will be taught six days per week, 6 ½ hours per day.

Monday will be the free day.

It will be taught in English.

Students look after themselves in regards to meals, but there is nothing to fear as Prague has an excellent and very reasonable selection of Vegetarian, Vegan and Raw food restaurants. For usually less than 140 Kc  a restaurant will offer at least one “menu” choice (lunchtime special) for the midday meal. Some of the Prague based students are fantastic cooks and have a lot of knowledge about food. For the most up to date knowledge about restaurants the best people to ask would be Stefania and Ivan.

During the morning training sessions, we encourage students to bring something small for them to eat as the training goes for over 3 hours. Stefania has offered to make some small snacks, cakes etc…just for this, they will be very reasonably priced so if you are interested make sure you have some coins on you.

Also on the Fridays if we have enough people interested, Stefania will cook the midday meal! For those that have experienced Stefania’s cooking you know how good this can be! Directly after the training we would go to Basama tea Kafe (Run by Helen and Andy), very close to Letna. Eat the meal prepared by Stefania and then drink some of the nice tea on offer. Andy has generously offered to open the Kafe early for us(usually opens at 16.00). Stefania will let us know how much the meal would cost, and we would just need to let her know of how many of us wants to go by the end of the Wednesday morning training sessions.




Students arrange accomodation by themselves.
