Heading off  soon for my Tai  Chi Retreat, preceded by an overnight at Danesfield House Spa.

Last time I attended the Tai Chi Retreat, there was a video made for youtube. It's quite long (and would have benefitted from a commentary) but does give an idea of the venue and various activities. It begins with a lengthy exploration of the Tower Room before moving to the tranquil inner courtyard and out into the grounds (that's me, at 5.03, spinning my staff the opposite way to everyone else. Must remember to pack my swords.

The pace is fairly hectic as the sessions are from 9am to about 10.30pm, but I shall be sensible. The Tutor, Glyn Williams knows that I may opt out of various sessions and/or withdraw from any I find too taxing.
