Course description

Tai Chi/Chi Kung (Qigong) – Online

Tai Chi and Chi Kung are ancient Chinese martial arts that bring about personal transformation through movement, breath and meditation. The classes are based around gentle, rhythmic movements, and are suitable for all levels of experience. Enhancing your vitality and well-being, the exercises are beneficial for the beginner and will work on a deeper level for those with more experience.

Suitability - Who should attend?

No previous experience of tai chi is necessary. These courses are mixed ability and suitable for all ages and experience. Tai chi is a safe and gentle activity, however, students with specific health problems should obtain their doctor's permission to attend classes and inform the tutor at the first session.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

By the end of the course, students will have: increased body awareness; increased strength, flexibility, core stability and balance; a better understanding of their own physical capacities and limitations, the ability to focus/concentrate the mind for a short period of time (if practiced daily) and an introduction level understanding of philosophical principles of tai chi/chi kung

Training Course Content

The whole group will practise some chi kung (Qigong) breathing exercises plus warming-up and cooling-down exercises. The class content will respond to the changing seasons and their corresponding element. In winter for example we are in the element of WATER and will be looking at static and moving forms connected to Water, our potential for change, it is fluidity and flow and it represents a state of rest in nature. We will explore its association with the bladder and kidney meridians and work with related tai chi forms.

Continuous assessment and verbal feedback will be given throughout the term

Course delivery details

The course will be run online using Zoom for the live class sessions and either the Moodle page for the course or some other system for the distribution of the electronic resources for the session sitting alongside this. Although there will be some adjustments that need to be made for the online version of this course, we will aim to keep the experience as close as possible to that of a face to face course taught in the Centre.
