Tai Ji Quan with Lhamo

Tai chi is a non-competitive martial art known for its self-defense techniques and health benefits. As a form of exercise, it combines gentle physical exercise and stretching with mindfulness. This martial art is an ancient Chinese tradition that has evolved over centuries and even though tai chi developed for self-defense, it has evolved into a graceful form of exercise that’s now used for stress reduction and a variety of other health conditions. Often described as meditation in motion, tai chi promotes serenity through gentle, flowing movements. Lhamo will be teaching 24 forms of Tai Chi Quan (which is a simplified style) for beginners; but according to the students level she will then progress to other forms of Tai Chi Quan like the 42 Style and the 37 Wu Style.

About the Teacher

Lhamo (Zhao Zhengrong), from China, started her martial arts journey at age 11, when she went to a Kung fu school in Shaolin and stayed there for 3 years, practicing 9 hours a day. Slowly shifting from outer martial arts to inner practices, she studied Ba Gua Zhang and Tai Ji Quan under different teachers, and kept on studying different aspects of Chinese Medicine. Lhamo moved to Auroville a year ago and since then she has been teaching and practicing a number of Chinese traditional martial and healing arts.
