Retreats – UK

How We Do Tai Chi Retreats

Our UK summer camps are set in beautiful corners of the English countryside with atmospheric training spaces just a couple of hours away from London. Taking place over a long weekend, there’s intensive Tai Chi training, as well as time to wander around and soak up the surroundings. With a campfire one night, and Tai Chi Philosophy talk on the other, it’s a good way to slow down, recharge, and connect with interesting people.

This is a testimonial from Victoria about our summer camp in 2017:

“[Highlights included] learning something new from someone that it is both knowledgeable and passionate about the subject. Food was great, and the atmosphere was relaxed. I laughed a lot, discovered two great new teas and became almost proficient in the art of roasting marshmallows.”

Summer Camp 2019

On the last weekend in July 2019 I went with a group of students from all over the UK (and one from outside of it) to train Tai Chi and Kung Fu in Hazel Hill woods in Salisbury. We had 70 acres of woodland to ourselves, a couple of ecolodges, and plenty of deer. After a weekend of training, good company, and a campfire talk on how to use the Taoist classics to improve your Tai Chi, one student, MK, had this to say:

“When out there in those woods under those immense trees time just evaporated… classes seemed to fly past in an instant – every moment of them pure joy, energy, contentment; deep stillness”
