This five-day course offers full vegetarian board and tuition covering all facets of Wu style Tai Chi Chuan by Sifu Gary Wragg. Participants can be of all levels, from complete beginners to instructors, and do not have to be members of Wu's Academy. Families are welcome, please ask for further details.
Classes will mostly take place outside, weather permitting! You can start the day with chi kung exercises, go on to sessions on the form, push hands, meditation, self defence and – for the more advanced – weapons. Training starts at 6 am and continues until 9.30 pm. Practitioners train as and when it suits them, and there are adequate rest breaks and meal times in between.
Nestled amongst 75 acres of woodlands, meadows and lakes is The Vedanta, a Grade II listed Elizabethan estate. Surrounding The Vedanta are miles of walking trails with Lincolnshire’s best country views.
Please make sure you bring adequate clothing for training outdoors - several pairs of shoes for training outside and inside are recommended! The grass can be moist and temperatures a little cooler during the early morning hours when we practise chi kung.
