Revitalise - Tai Chi and Meditation Retreats

Tai Chi and Meditation Retreats

Ian has recently got together with friends Andy and Denise Spragg to co-operate in running retreat programs for their Re-Vitalise organisation. Re-Vitalise have been running retreats now for 6 years. They have taken over 700 people through their retreats and many come back time and again. They find venues that have built-in calm and tranquility and aim to convey the fundamentals of the arts they teach in a way that is relaxed, informal and fun.

Practicing Tai Chi at Braziers Park in OxfordshireBraziers Park in OxfordshireRe-Vitalise offer a gradual progression through the arts without a formal grading system. You won’t find tests, certificate or exams on Re-Vitalise retreats. That isn’t their purpose

The goal of the organisation is to convey these fascinating arts to people in ways that are relaxed, entertaining and fun with the hope that their customers will continue to practise and begin to experience some of the benefits of these fascinating arts.

If you need to find time and space in your busy life, to learn to unwind and concentrate on what matters, then a Re-Vitalise Tai Chi and Meditation Retreat will be just for you. During the retreat you will be taken through the foundations of these amazing mental and physical disciplines.
