Relax in beauty
You are welcome to join the Retreat with the combination of Tai Chi, qigong, heavenly food, and activities to boost your wellbeing at this special time in the beautiful surroundings of the Hanmer Mountains.
The retreat will begin on Thursday afternoon.
The schedule for classes is
Thursday 11th 4.30 - 6.30
Friday 12th 9.30 -12.30 and 5.30 - 6.30
Saturday 13th 9.30 -12.30 and 5.30 - 6.30
Sunday 14th 9.30 -12.30
Weather permitting, there will also be tai chi before breakfast and sunset, Chi walking, plus a pool pass included in the package.
The qigong focus will be on Dragon and Tiger qigong. The tiger represents earthly energy and the dragon heavenly energy. It has been chosen for it's relative simplicity while still offering many of the health benefits of more complicated systems. The tai chi focus will be on sun style tai chi although the sunrise and sunset practices will also include Chen and Yang styles. The sun style has a dance-like quality and is often used with older people. This is a shortened form with depth to gain more benefits.
There will also be a relaxation session where you may choose to lie down. If choosing to lie down, please bring a yoga mat, blanket, and cushion. I have a limited supply.
You can choose to have a pampering session which can include massage, a private lesson, amatsu (pressure points for balance), top things to improve your wellbeing. This will be at the special price of $40 for half an hour and spaces are limited
The cuisine for the weekend will be wholefood plant-based, created without refined ingredients like oil and white sugar. Salt will also be limited. There will be variety to meet different tastes
Please be aware that even eating like this for a short time can alter the need for blood pressure medication and diabetic meds so you will need to monitor this carefully. Please ask if there is any concerns
Food and drink will be provided from Thursday afternoon till Sunday (breakfast and morning tea on Sunday).
