A 3-Day Taichi Workshop at Cammac Music Centre, Harrington, QC

SEPTEMBER 15-17, 2023
led by Hubert Gagnon (Comme les nuages)
and Philippe Gagnon (Taichi nuances)

For all
Taichi - 3 day workshop - CAMMAC

Introduction to Taichi
Intensives calendar

This workshop is designed for both new and experienced students. After the success of Winter Week 2023, and the online seminar on the Five Animal Forms, we will once again explore the theme of the Five Forms through the Tai Chi set, foundation movements and standing meditation postures (站桩 zhàn zhuāng).  We also invite you to participate in periods of sitting meditation every morning upon waking (靜坐 jìngzuò - sitting in quietude).

For those who are new to Tai Chi or want to learn it for the first time, we'll also offer an introductory course to the modern, health-focused Yang-style tai chi chuan (taijiquan) form taught by Moy Lin-shin.

For the more experienced, the program includes specific flexibility and strengthening exercises, as well as methods for improving alignment and overall coordination based on the principles of the Five Animal Forms. As many have discovered, the intensity of several days dedicated to taichi creates the conditions for deep inner work, both physical and spiritual.

The beauty of the site also invites you to take a walk in nature, or relax by the lake between sessions.
