Enjoy Winter Warmth

beautiful venue with expert tuition

 Villa Amatista, Lanzarote

watch this space for 2019 dates


Use this opportunity to deepen the relationship with yourself and with other people, on this Tai Chi Holiday.

We’ll be working on an easy- to- learn Yang Style Tai Chi Form, eating great home cooked food, making excursions around the island and having a good time!

Villa Amatista will be our home for the week. Discover this unique venue lovingly built by someone who is sensitively tuned in to the island. Each apartment has it’s own design, which you can share with others or stay in by yourself. This holiday is generally for smaller groups so plenty of room for everyone. Food is prepared with good health and vitality in mind.

The programme is designed to fulfill the needs of whoever joins the holiday. Generally, for three days we immerse ourselves in learning or progressing our Tai Chi. The daily schedule then changes so we can go on excursions and or spend time alone if you want.

Early morning session
10am -12pm       Tai Chi Form and principles

This is your Holiday, so you participate to the level that supports you relaxing and that allows you to generate your well-being.

We will explore the nearby island of La Graciosa, a genuine “No news, no shoes” island, where the pace of life is slow, with a capital “S”.

Relax!  Michael led our group with a gentle authority, opening up the possibility of “doing less so more can happen”Daily practise of Tai Chi and Chi Quing and meditation created space for body, mind and spirit to connect. The group was supportive and created fun alongside working hard. ST – England

All my business thoughts calmed down.It gave me a lot of joy to follow Michael’s relaxed, concentrated  movements. First to be totally in the body to let the energy flow.The ocean, the sun, the earth, the waves helped us ….breathing in……breathing out. Michael shows us how to be where the inside meets the outside.NOW, that’s a holiday.        T- Germany

I went on this holiday with the intention to have fun whilst re-connecting to Tai Chi. I enjoyed practicing the form focusing on various principles he explained: flow, breathing, yin-yang, moving from one’s centre.     SH

Tai Chi Holiday Retreat


Sept 18th – Sept 25th 2018

Tai Chi in the warmth and sunshine of Arillas, Corfu.

The Greek island of Corfu is a truly enchanting location for this one week holiday retreat. It’s tranquil beaches, breathtaking sunsets, dense olive and cypress groves, historic villages and friendly locals extend a warm welcome to lovers of nature and Tai Chi enthusiasts alike.


The Nikos apartments in the friendly Corfu village of Arillas will be our home for this Tai Chi retreat. The Complex is set beneath a wooded hillside in a fertile valley beside a stream. It is approximately 900m from the beach on the north west coast of the island.



The Tai Chi  Holiday is designed to drastically reduce the effects of stress in your life and for you to gain valuable knowledge and insights into the profound art of Tai Chi that will become a foundation for your health and enjoyment.


This is a uniquely potent opportunity to make friends, energise body and mind, while building a deeper level of health and confidence. How would it feel to spend most of your time outdoors on this Tai Chi Holiday and perhaps discover some new directions for your life? Taking a break from your usual routine, you can create an opening for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Many participants have reported this!


 A typical day may look like this

7.30 am                Optional early morning Chi Gung or energising exercise

8.30 am                Breakfast

10.00 – 12 pm      Learning Tai Chi Form and principles

4 – 6 pm                Learning Tai chi Form and principles


7.00 pm                Dinner/meditation/dance/excursion

You are encouraged to spend time listening to your body and then to respond sensitively. Perhaps you will take the option of sometimes spending free time alone; you may feel to join in with others. You may need fun and laughter or time for quiet reflection. It’s your choice.


On the Retreats, the focus will be on training. To develop, learn and understand sound Tai Chi principles that will produce a strong, relaxed body and quiet mind. Meditation for self reflection and stillness will be a part of the holiday. All supported by an ethos of self-cultivation for strengthening spirit………and yes, we’ll have lots of fun as well!


Early booking is suggested to make sure you get a place on this retreat, in the special village of Arillas, on the North West of Corfu. In addition to having great beaches and excellent tavernas, Arillas is home to several alternative holiday/retreat centers, which gives the village a unique feeling.
