DSC02217Prague Summer Residential 2015

 

From Saturday 4th to Friday 10th July 2015, the Taiji School offers the Prague Summer Taichi Residential.

Due to various external factors, the Residential will only be for one week this year, not the usual one month.

Coming from our experience of park training in the last four years, we want to offer a space for training based on following, exploring and playing with whatever comes alive for every student. Thus allowing the body to learn through experience not only through intellectual understanding.

Through this type of training, students can progress by allowing the time and space for the principles to develop within.

The only prerequisite to attending is an open attitude. Beginners are Welcome!

It will be taught 6 ½ hours per day for the full seven days.

It will be taught in English….

alfasfera_bannerDeep Relaxation in a 21st Century Couch?

Recently we were fortunate enough to try out the Alfasféra, a revolutionary couch that induces the Alpha state through music, which is complemented by light, heat and vibrations, which wraps you up in a three-dimensional audio experience.

The Alfasféra restores inner balance and calm, taking your consciousness to a deeper level. Several scientific studies have been taken, and the following are just some of the physical and psychological effects;

Stress Reduction
Deep relaxation
Increase Creativity
Harmonization of breath
Lowers high blood pressure
Stimulates blood circulation
Improves memory and learning process

The price for 30 min is 200 Kc and for an hour 300 Kc. If you are interested to try it out, book an appointment at Studio Manuela;

Taiji Food – Free eBook from our Italian Chef!!

Taiji Food ImageThose that participated in the recent Prague Summer Taiji Residential training were extremely fortunate to have the experience of letting our Italian Chef, Stefania, play with the balance of our taste buds!

Every morning, midway through the 3.5 hour training session, Stefania would unveil another “Snack Masterpiece”. Not only were the snacks delicious but very healthy too…from exquisite hummus to succulent cakes mmmm…I think people must have been more interested in coming for the food than the training.

The exciting news is that Stefania has created a wonderful little book, Taiji Food, detailing all 31 of the recipes she created over the Residential, and thanks to her generosity its completely Free!!!..
