Taijijiandao
Following the traditional taijiquan thirteen-power theory, the taiji dagger (taijijiandao) creates a bridge between bare-hand training and traditional weapons work. A dagger differs from a knife in that it has no sharp cutting edge—only a point. Study of the taijijiandao includes solo and partner work that follows the same ‘four-square, four-diagonal, five-phase’ format found in the thirteen-power approach to taijiquan, taijidao, taijijian and taijiqiang. Please bring a wooden or plastic dagger/knife.

Neigong
This 20-minute long, five- part neigong routine brings together the Five Words of Self-Composure with taijiquan core principles and can function as a warm-up or cool-down for your taijiquan practice.  In this class we will go into greater depth with this internal practice. The five sections of the Five Words Brocade are designed to progressively loosen up and energize the practitioner, preparing her or him for taijiquan practice.

  • Full weekend – $275.00
  • Friday night only – $50.00
  • Sat/Sun – $250

Dr Patricia Beretta Tai Chi logoUPCOMING WORKSHOP –  FULL AUTUMN LIVING:

Tai Chi, Qigong, and Traditional Chinese Medicine for the season change!
Saturday, October 14th, 2017, 1pm to 2:30pm –
Kitchener-Waterloo Location to be announced

In this 90-minute workshop, we have the opportunity to learn how seasons affect our body, energy, and mind according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. Each season brings a different phase in life and inside us, with its specific needs for the body, internal organs and emotions– the natural rhythms of the seasons. Alternating presentation of traditional Chinese medicine principles, with discussions, QiGong & Tai-Chi movements, stretching, and meditation, this inspiring workshop promises to give us a new perspective on how to harmonize one’s life, lifestyle and a mindset according to and in harmony with nature and its seasonal rhythms. You will take home information relevant to your daily life, as well as handouts and videos to remember the practices you’ve learned! We are promised the opportunity also to take home relevant informative   handouts and videos to remember the practices covered in the workshop.
A group rate is available if negotiated and settled by the balance of the evening following our Tai Chi session on Monday, September 18.
We also have the opportunity to craft this day:  It can be the sole event of the day, or we can organize to package it with another attraction in the Kitchener-Waterloo region.
Let’s talk about it!

Past Events….


Dragon Boat Race Event banner

Our immediate community of practice has ties to TNT Academy, who are performing an extensive Tai Chi demonstration at the Dragon Boat Race Festival. We have been invited to come spectate the demo, and it is an opportunity to meet and chat with others involved in Tai Chi (and likely those involved in martial arts).

Then there is the dragon boat race itself! For more info, visit http://dragonboats.com/festival-schedule/
