Keeping Things Whole

In a field
I am the absence
of field.
This is
always the case.
wherever I am
I am what is missing.

When I walk
I part the air
and always
the air moves in
to fill the spaces
where my body's been.

We all have reasons
for moving.
I move
to keep things whole.

Lakes T'AI CHI and Internal Arts


Welcome to our website.

Yang style T'ai Chi - hand forms, Chi Kung, weaponry, partnerwork, Ba Gua, meditation, philosophy


These pages are designed to be the club magazine of the Lakes T'ai Chi Group and to give an illustration of T'ai Chi as a recreational pastime to those interested in joining us.
We hope to give you an insight into the different perspectives of some of the people that come to our classes on our ta'i chi enthusiasts page.

T'ai Chi is a recreation that is very difficult to explain and indeed the more you begin to understand then the more you realise you don't understand. We hope in this website at least to give you an impression of what "that stuff they do in the parks in China" is about.
In order to navigate this site you might like to first look at the classes we do, and the page about forms which is one of the central aspects of T'ai Chi. Otherwise, if you go straight to the t'ai chi enthusiasts page, you'll find a nice width of comment from some of club `members`, (which we intend to update from time to time). Then suitably intrigued you can wander our pages at will, and indeed you probably haven't read this far and are wandering around already.
