Tai Chi Holiday Retreat

 

 Villa Amatista, Lanzarote

February 3 – 10th 2018

 Enjoy Winter Warmth

for adventurers who like to meditate

        A beautiful venue and expert tuition.

Use this opportunity to deepen the relationship with yourself, with Tai Chi and with other people.

We’ll be working on an easy- to- learn Yang Style Tai Chi Form, eating great home cooked food, making excursions around the island and having a good time!

Villa Amatista will be our home for the week. Discover this unique venue lovingly built by someone who is sensitively tuned in to the island. Each apartment has it’s own design, which you can share with others or stay in by yourself. This holiday is generally for smaller groups so plenty of room for everyone. Food is prepared with good health and vitality in mind.

The programme is designed to fulfill the needs of whoever joins the holiday. Generally, for three days we immerse ourselves in learning or progressing our Tai Chi. The daily schedule then changes so we can go on excursions and or spend time alone if you want.

This is your Holiday, so you participate to the level that supports you relaxing and that allows you to generate your well-being.

We will explore the nearby island of La Graciosa, a genuine “No news, no shoes” island, where the pace of life is slow, with a capital “S”.

Thank you for this very special Tai Chi holiday.I am very grateful for all the stillness and grace that has been arriving in me; for all the wisdom and teachings you have shared with such patience and humour;for the privilege for being able to practice Tai Chi in all the wonderful places in nature that you have chosen to help attune me with the elements and myself;for  all the relax, all the fun and all the ease, and the revelations that have come to me about my life and myself.   ZB

Relax!  Michael led our group with a gentle authority, opening up the possibility of “doing less so more can happen”Daily practise of Tai Chi and Chi Quing and meditation created space for body, mind and spirit to connect. The group was supportive and created fun alongside working hard. ST – England

All my business thoughts calmed down.It gave me a lot of joy to follow Michael’s relaxed, concentrated  movements. First to be totally in the body to let the energy flow.The ocean, the sun, the earth, the waves helped us ….breathing in……breathing out. Michael shows us how to be where the inside meets the outside.NOW, that’s a holiday.        T- Germany

I went on this holiday with the intention to have fun whilst re-connecting to Tai Chi. I enjoyed practicing the form focusing on various principles he explained: flow, breathing, yin-yang, moving from one’s centre.     SH
