Qigong and tai chi seminars



Much of the function of weekly classes is as a weekly relaxation and re-balancing session to release the tensions built up during the week, with some time also dedicated to developing your knowledge and ability.  

Workshops and retreats allow much longer periods to develop your internal awareness and ability in a group energy enabling you to make jumps in your ability and understanding. This is invaluable if you are interested in going deeper into the subjects and so helps you get more from your practise. People report that workshops and retreats deepen their level of practise and that they generally have a nice time, as there is a relaxed but coherent learning environment like in classes. We recommend them for anyone wanting to really get into the Internal Arts
  • Retreats usually last 5 days. You can attend day 1, or 1 + 2, or 1+2+3, etc up to all 5 days. The more you can stay the better, as courses are designed to cover the material and for its absorbtion over the 5 days, but a day or two can be very helpful too

  • In general, all levels are catered for with a minimum of one terms' experience or equivalent at O.I.A., see individual workshop or retreat information for details. Please email me if you have any queries


2020- 2021 Weekends, Retreats & Hosted Events:                         (O.I.A = Oxford Internal Arts)

This year the aim is to start to engage complete qigong work, i.e. the enabling of our breathing, chi, fluids and tissues to come together and function synergistically. It is this togetherness which enables us to balance our body, energy and mind naturally and easily throughout the year as needed. All the major neigung (internal techniqes) will be involved, and this year we will also work with their integration into the inner balancing work of Bend the Bow Spinal Qigong ​​

Full details of each retreat will be posted and emailed: Join Mailng List Here
