We have designed several retreats & short trips which allow students to train on a regular basis whilst visiting the highlights of each city or town. Yet our ethos remains the same – to become involved in the local life of each place. We use a variety of transport, both public and private, including buses, taxis, bikes, boats and trains. For longer journeys we mostly take overnight sleeper trains, but occasionaly we take a flight. The accomdation we use is equally varied, we like to include a stay with a local family, sometimes a guesthouse or a hotel. We also love to camp outdoors in the mountains, on the beach, or close to a waterfall, where we have lots of space to practice Tai Chi and connect with the nature around us. Being a Tai Chi Traveler is a way of living, it means you have freedom to practice anywhere, and at any time, and this is reflected in the fluidity and spontaneity of our trips.
As our living standards continuously improve and our daily work and lives gradually electricitize,computerize,automatize, we do less and less exercise. As the amount of physical exercise we do decreases so does our good health. Tai Chi Traveller is the perfect antidote to this stagnation brought on by modern living, combining the physical benefits of daily Tai Chi with the enlightening experiences of travel. Trips also include many activities besides Tai Chi such as hiking, biking, climbing, and even cooking, to rejuvinate both the body, mind, and spirit.
