A lot of students and people new to the UK Shaolin Temple attended the activities at the weekend.
They learned Tai Chi movements with Shi Yan Min and also had the great honour to be taught by grandmaster Gou. His lifelong experience in teaching Tai Chi is always very inspiring for all students.
In between the Tai Chi sessions, students also learned about Calligraphy, massage and meditation.
An all time favourite is the tea ceremony, where students can try different types of tea in a very relaxed atmosphere and get a chance to talk to the masters and exchange ideas and experiences with other students.
The Retreat ended in a Chinese style celebration dinner, with everyone sharing traditional Chinese food.
Everyone enjoyed the weekend and took a lot of experiences home to remember, practice and enjoy.
We are looking forward to our next event and hope you will all join us.
