From many experts’ point of view, Taijiquan is an ideal relaxation method for stress reduction. It is a kind of Chinese martial arts, which combines the deep abdominal breathing, body movement and relaxation. Taijiquan conjoins body, intellect and soul in a harmonious way. It regulates the breathing and it invigorates the cardiovascular and the nervous system. You will learn from a Taijiquan master and relax yourself in Yangshuo with its unforgettable karst landscape.

There, deep abdominal breathing, body movements and relaxation are combined together. By the use of concentration on the slow, soft and flowing body movements, body and soul will be harmonized. Taijiquan leads to a deliberate interaction with one’s own body and helps to become aware of one’s own attitude towards the handling of everyday life.
