First tai chi workshop since Covid-19 lockdown

Small group of PTCCI students of Dan met up near Northampton at the weekend for some socially distance instruction from Dan Docherty.

There around 12 of us in attendance. It was a bit awkward at first, remembering to keep our distance and wearing masks when necessary.

Arranged by Caroline, everything was in place to make it as safe as possible and limit the possibility of the spread of COVID-19.

Dan went through the first section of the long form and explained some of the applications. We opened with exercises such as pillar support the sky, tiger embrace head, cloud hands and retrieve the moon from the bottom of the sea. These exercises are really good for the spine.

Later he went through the Spear form, giving us much needed corrections and more in depth explanation of what we are doing in respect to applications.

I think everyone benefited greatly on Sunday from Dan Docherty instruction.

It was nice to see some old friends, some who have recently recovered from the COVID-19 and others who have been in many months of self isolation.

Hopefully another workshop will be around corner.
