Tai Chi On The Beach

Bexhill beach

From time to time we go to a location like, Bexhill beach to practice Qigong and Tai Chi.

“The tide was out and the wind was very strong so we found a spot where the rocks offered some shelter. It was a real joy to be near the sea, feeling the wind around us with the sun coming through the clouds.”

Practicing the principles of balance and harmony just seemed effortless for a change! The undulations of the beach, the feeling of the wind and the sound of the waves kept the attention in the present, open and tranquil.
