Tai-Chi workshops with Nottingham Confucius Institute and Lakeside Arts


June 1st, 2022

The Nottingham Confucius Institute and Lakeside Arts are offering a number of Tai-Chi workshops throughout July 2022.

Each Saturday in July, workshops will be held just outside the DH Lawrence Pavilion on University Park campus, being led by Dr. Lan Lo, Mandarin Lecturer in the School of Cultures.

She will introduce Qigong,  a collection of basic tai chi-style movements that improves the circulation and balance of the body’s vitality, widely considered to be an effective exercise for the promotion of physical and mental wellbeing.

Qigong (pronounced “chee-gung”) is a collection of basic tai chi-style movements that improves the circulation and balance of the body’s vitality or “life force energy”.

Over four weeks, Lan will introduce ‘Five-Animal Exercises’, one of the most widely practiced forms of traditional Qigong inspired by the work of Chinese physician Huatuo, of the Donghan Dynasty.

Using effective breathing control and exploring specific animal movements these are widely considered to be an effective exercise for the promotion of physical and mental wellbeing.

Prices are £4 per session, or £12 for all four sessions. The workshops will be held outdoors – if there is adverse weather, the workshop will be cancelled and carried forward into August.

Workshops are suitable for beginners and anyone aged over eight years old.
