Workshops & Retreats

The Long Form Project

An extended series of Workshops and retreats on the Wu Style Tai Chi Long Form of Daoist Immortal Liu Hongjie as transmitted by master Bruce Frantzis.

The Plan

To offer three 10hr weekends (Sat & Sun) per year plus a nine day retreat (Sat-Sun) at the end of May over four years or so (however long it takes to get through the form). It is also my intention to offer supplemental weekend courses on various aspects of the internal physical and energetic mechanics of Tai Chi (the 16 neigong).

Who is it for

The short answer is ‘everyone’. The longer answer is here.

Where

The location: Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire, is in the middle of the country to make it as easy as possible to reach. It is a beautiful place with a large range of accomodation choices.

The venue: the Calderdale Yoga Centre.
