Chinese Internal Exercise in Cambridge - Tai Chi Chuan - Chi Kung - Hsing I Chuan
Join a growing community of Tai Chi, Chi Kung and Hsing I students in Cambridge. I have taught in London since 1982 and have many long-standing students there and I have extended my teaching to Cambridge where my family and I are based. I am interested in taking on serious students who want to invest time in getting to grips with the complex nature of these nuanced arts and appreciate their history and philosophy as well as the physical benefits. For more information on each of the three subjects offered please see the links in this website’s menu.

Tai Chi Chuan; We will be starting up a new short form of tai chi course.
This short form is based on Cheng Man Ching's 37 form as adjusted by the highly regarded Dr Chi Chiang Tao.
It provides about 7-8 minutes of tai chi practise.
The first term of 10 weeks £85.
RE joining: You could join this course after the start date IF you have enough appropriate experience or are prepared to take one-to-one classes to catch up.
Chi Kung; We start a 10 week course of White Crane chi kung.
I really like this comprehensive chi kung exercise.
It is a fantastic general work out involving all round exercise, stretching & balancing.
I have found it to be a great starter to the day, or as a preparation to my Tai Chi practise.
It can be as gentle as you want & you can very easily tailor it to your needs & ability.
£120 for the course or £100 if advance payment received by Sept 23rd.
RE joining: It is not possible join this course unless you have previous White Crane chi kung experience.
