Welcome to a four-day intensive tai chi workshop at Nøsen with Ann Danaiya Usher

This four-day course tai chi workshop will deepen our investigation into the movement of the spine. It is open to beginners and practitioners. As beginners in tai chi we learn the external choreography, the placement of the arms and the legs, the timing of the movements, the coordination of all parts of the body as we transfer weight, moving through space. We start to see the choreography as a medium for turning and stretching the spine. As we become stronger, more flexible and comfortable with the mechanics, our balance improves, we become more centred and we learn to synchronize the outer movement with the inner movement - the dropping and relaxing, and the continuous rotation, expansion and contraction of the spinal column.

This perpetual movement of the spine is the focus of this workshop. We will work systematically on unifying the external with the internal. We will explore what it means to let the movement and flow of the spinal column - from the base of the skull down to the tail bone - guide the outer movement.

Ann Danaiya Usher has been practicing tai chi for over 30 years. This workshop will provide beginners with a comprehensive introduction to the basic principles, while more experienced practitioners will have the opportunity to share and deepen their understanding.

Nøsen yoga & Fjellhotell, surrounded by mountains, lakes and meadows, provides a beautiful and nurturing environment for our practice.
