The Dragon's Head Blog: First Beginner’s Weekend of 2016 in Edinburgh


The weekend of 16-17 January saw three Beginner Weekends, all at the same time, at three different Centres around Great Britain.

Edinburgh, 16 Jan 16 - Beginner WeekendIn Edinburgh, 18 completely new students enrolled as members, and joined with 28 current members (some of whom were still fairly new) for a weekend of Taoist Tai Chi practice.[gallery type="slideshow" size="large" ids="2891,2892,2893"]In their matching orange 'Grand Opening' shirts, the models for the weekend showed the first few moves three times, and everyone joined in.[gallery type="slideshow" size="large" ids="2894,2895,2896"]Philomena and Elizabeth, leaders for the weekend, demonstrated a section of the sequence to illustrate some basic principles.[gallery type="slideshow" size="large" ids="2904,2897"]In the 'walk the walls' segment, we learned about some of the significant items that hang on the walls of our centre; and in another segment we shared some of the rich testimonial material from our 'Fung Loy Kok Taoist Tai Chi' YouTube channel. [gallery size="large" type="slideshow" ids="2898,2910,2902"]Back on the floor, we continued the instruction in the usual way - the models demonstrate three times, then we all practice together three times. It works! - everyone picked up the sequence very quickly.Edinburgh, 16 Jan 16 - Beginner WeekendBefore long we were able to perform the whole sequence together.Best of all, for the new members, they hadn't just enrolled for a weekend course - they'd made a charitable donation entitling them to four months of membership of the Taoist Tai Chi Society, with access to over a dozen classes a week at the Edinburgh Centre alone, and many more around GB and worldwide. How good is that?!
