From today on, you will take part in the Taijiquan Course, which means every day two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon practicing Taijiquan with the master. Taijiquan consists of gentle movements, whose sequences have been taken from work-related tasks, movements of animals and martial arts. 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. But it is deployed mainly for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, diseases of the back, articular and muscular problems as well as for the fortification of the natural self-healing processes and the immune defence. The training program will be designed according to your abilities and knowledge.
