About Tai Chi and Chi Gong
Tai Chi and Chi Gong are ancient forms of Chinese exercise which have been practised for hundreds of years. The soft yet strong, flowing movements, combined with meditative breathing and mind focus, help to develop a deep sense of connection within our bodies and minds. Through regular practice this can develop a strong and flexible body and a calm and quiet mind.
Amsterdam Chen Tai Chi & Chi Gong focuses on the teachings of Chen style which is more dynamic and powerful than lots of other styles of Tai Chi. The Chen style is the oldest form of Tai Chi ever practised. It uses explosive movements as well as the soft and flowing type which gives it as a practice, tremendous potential to develop and evolve ones body and mind as a Tai Chi practitioner.
About Sophie your instructor
Sophie Fagan is a Tai chi instructor from the UK now living in Amsterdam. She has studied Tai Chi for over ten years in a variety of settings. Having trained and taught at Tai Chi schools in Bristol UK as well as deepening her training at The Wudang Gong Fu Academy in China. This range of experience and inspiration has fuelled the enthusiasm and knowledge inherent in her teaching.
A sharing from Sophie –
“I discovered Tai Chi at a very stressful time of my life, when work got on top of me and I was finding it very difficult to switch off and find any ‘me time’. Discovering Tai chi has changed all that, helping me control my stress levels and providing me with that vital space to let go and relax. In turn it has deepened the connection between my mind and body – developing good core strength and finding beauty in the movements, which are created in the Tai Chi forms. I love nothing more than to share the teachings of Tai Chi with those around me and to witness their development and learning.”
