Eryri Tai-Ji? Eryri means “Eagles peak”, and is the name given to the highest mountain in Wales situated within the Snowdonia national park. In our Tai-Ji practice, to return to mountain is an important motif and movement which means to return to our natural sense of self and well being, to return home in ourselves.
Tai-Ji is a natural and joyful practice for every one of all ages and abilities.
Attending Tai-Ji Classes and Online Instruction
What to expect
Wear loose fitting clothing, with bare feet or light shoes.
Classes begin with simple and gentle flowing movements and stretches, Chi-Kung, which warm, energise and relax the Body and calm and focus the Mind.
With lightness and in a Playful, non-forcing way we explore the Tai-Ji Ritual, 5 Element and Circle Forms of the Living Tao as transmitted by Master Chungliang Al Huang.
Without becoming “fixed”, nor with emphasis on “getting it right” we use the Movements and Exercises of the Tai-Ji Form to enhance our own awareness, creativity and Spiritual unfolding.
In Tai-Ji we find “Stillness in Movement” Classes often include a period of “Just Sitting” or Zazen. Allowing a coming to Stillness in the present moment.
