Imagine a holiday where you replace the hustle and bustle of everyday life with nature and tranquility. A holiday where you exercise most days, explore an ancient culture and relax so properly that you actually come home rested, recovered, fitter and healthier.
That holiday exists.
The Maling Shaolin Kungfu Academy welcomes you to attend their special Tai Chi Retreat in the scenic area of rural China. Participants receive full room and board in a wonderfully peaceful environment surrounded by nature.
Tai Chi helps to reduce stress and promote health
Tai Chi is popular because it is a highly effective way to improve your overall health – in body, mind and spirit. With the focus on the flowing movements, your mind is completely in the present and becomes calm & clear. As a result, Tai Chi is often referred to as ‘meditation in motion’.
In summary, the benefits of Tai Chi include:
> rejuvenate your body, loosen your joints, and ease your tensions;
> gain more energy and strength;
> increase inner peace and mental clarity;
> improve blood circulation;
> improve overall well-being and happiness.
Anyone can learn Tai Chi
No matter how much or little experience you have, everyone can practise and enjoy learning Tai Chi. From our youngest student (8 yrs) to our oldest student (71 yrs), everyone improves, enjoys the classes and goes home with a new-found spring in their step.
We welcome beginners as well as advanced practitioners. Our Tai Chi Masters are very adept at judging an individual’s skill level and will adapt the training to each person’s needs.
