Celebrating the Summer in Oudolf Field and the Radić Pavilion
We are delighted to announce that T’ai Chi teacher, Caroline Kenmore, will be delivering a 6-week course in T’ai Chi, in and around the Radić Pavilion this Summer.
The form taught will be Ba Duan Jin. This translates as ‘The Eight Pieces of the Brocade’. It is taken to mean 8 separate exercises, which together encompass all areas of health and fitness to create a beautiful and elegant set of movements. Ba Duan Jin has been created primarily as a form of medical T’ai Chi, also having important applications in martial art. Each exercise has many health benefits. By the end of the course each participant will have an understanding of, and physical experience of qi in their bodies, and have knowledge of a complete set of forms that will confer health and wellbeing when practiced regularly.
Caroline started shiatsu training in 1989, at the same time as studying T’ai Chi Chuan, where QiGong is an essential part of the 3- year training course. Both disciplines use qi, one for combat training, one for health; this gives Caroline a complete understanding of how to cultivate and develop the body’s vital energies. She completed her diploma in 1993, and did a post-graduate training in 1998. Shortly after she did the Teacher Training to become a Shiatsu Educator, and taught on the 3 – year training programmes for the Shiatsu College in Bristol up to the present day. She is a qualified QiGong and T’ai Chi teacher.
This course is open to all. Participants must dress appropriately as it will be a predominantly outdoor class – loose fitting clothes and trainers, or flat soled flexible footwear.
Dates of the 6-week course:
Wednesdays 5, 12, 19, 26 July & 2, 9 August 2017
Time: 9 – 10 am
Cost: £42 per person
