Yang Taiji with Paul Mitchell

Over these two days courses Paul will be teaching the mechanics, principles and correct body alignments of the Yang family 37 form. This will include practices such as the Wu Song Sheng Fa (Loosening Exercises), Tui Shou Drills and the Ba Men. These principles build the foundation upon which internal energetics are developed.

Paul, who is a senior teacher within Lotus Nei Gong School of Daoist Arts, has studied the martial systems of Asia for 35 years and will embed the energies and principles of pushing hands into this course. It is these internal martial elements that characterise this fascinating system of personal development. A person can approach Taiji as a martial system or for purely its incredible health benefits. Although Taiji Quan (grand ultimate fist) is an effective martial system it specialises in real ‘self defence’ against: time, injury and disease.

The course is suitable for all levels of knowledge and ability from novice to advanced Taiji practitioners. Paul will assist each student individually to either learn or improve their Taiji practise

Training will be 10:00 until 4:30pm on Saturday and 09:30 to 4:00pm on Sunday. Please bring your own lunch.
