Partner Work

In our T'ai Chi we practise lots of different types of partner work. We learn to listen to and connect with a group as seen in the first video below.

 We have fun investigating applications.

This affords us the opportunity to tune our attention to our partner's rhythm and movement.
This type of training is fun and a great way to become more aware of peoples energy and intention. We learn to feel the subtle energetic signals that we give out and receive in our T'ai chi and this understanding overflows into our daily life making us more perceptive in all our relationships.

 In these slower more sensitive exercises we tune in to our partners energy, 'listening' with our finger tips. This is a great training allowing us to become much more aware of the different subtle energy signature that everyone has. Just as we all have different finger prints we all have a unique energy signature and listening to and feeling that energy is a fascinating aspect of this practise.

Whether we work in a group or one to one we are always exchanging energy and connecting deeply in mysterious ways beyond our minds understanding.
