Update: Due to rain being forecast for 10th August, this workshop will now take place at Shellgrove Hall, Shellgrove Road, N16 8UU. The time of the workshop is still 11am-1pm.
A Saturday Tai Chi workshop will take place on Walthamstow Marshes on Saturday 10th August between 11am-1pm. We’ll be training the 13 Wudang Tai Chi Principles, with exercises designed to build a strong sense of centre for improved balance and co-ordination. This session will feature basic skills, some partnerwork, and a period of quiet practise to enable students to soak up the natural beauty around them. It’s suitable for complete beginners.
Leyton marsh is part of Walthamstow Marshes, one of the few remaining pieces of London’s river valley grasslands and an area of Special Scientific Interest, which attracts both buzzards and peregrine falcons. Students are welcome to bring a packed lunch along for a picnic afterwards, or to eat at the Princess of Wales pub, which has a large beer garden overlooking the canal, just nearby.
The cost for attending this workshop is £20 if booked in advance, or £25 to drop in on the day. There is a 20% discount for concessions. You can get to Leyton Marsh via Kings Head Bridge (E5 9RJ, see map) where we will meet from 10.45am before training in a spot on the marshes nearby. It is also possible to get to Leyton Marsh by coming through Lea Valley Ice Skating Centre on Lea Bridge Road.
If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line, otherwise I hope to see some of you there to train Tai Chi close to nature in this beautiful spot in East London
