From Saturday noon July 1st to Wednesday morning July 5th we will once again have the pleasure of being hosted at the amazing Karapanou House for our 5-day tai ji retreat. Open to all students of our school who already do tai chi with us. This course will only be open to students who have practiced tai chi before and know at least part of slow set (Dong style).
In the seminar we will work on the long form of tai chi slow set, the straight & knife set (here we will be divided into 2 groups so that some who don’t know them can also participate). Push hands & 5 animal chi gong.
Oikia Karapanou is a special house that hosts these types of seminars. It consists of 3 different spaces with rooms, such as the garden (1 double, 1 4-bed with their own bathrooms – the ground floor (3 doubles with 2 shared bathrooms) and the 1st floor with one single- one double and one triple (which communicate between them and a shared bathroom).
Course times: 7:30 – 9:30 in the morning & 18:30 – 20:30 in the afternoon. The meals will be breakfast (at 9:30) & lunch at 14:00. (with the exception that on Saturday night we will have dinner). The first class starts at 6.30pm on Saturday 1st July and the last class finishes at 9.30am on Wednesday 5th July followed by breakfast. There will be no lunch on Wednesday 5th July.
Cost 370 euros (includes accommodation for 4 nights in a double or triple room with half board breakfast + lunch and all courses).
An early seat reservation with a deposit of 220 euros is necessary to confirm your seat by the end of May at the latest. The deposit is non-refundable in case of cancellation. The rest of the total amount must be paid by June 15th. If someone cancels their participation from 10 days before the seminar, 80% of their entire participation will be kept unless someone can be found to take their place.
Anyone who participates in the entire seminar and does not live in the House: 150 euros (includes lessons & fees of the House for its premises).
Since the places for this seminar are becoming very fast, it is best to let us know now if you are interested. If someone does not want to stay at home, they can stay at the Stefania hotel, which can however be used by members of our group only if there are not enough rooms in the House.
