Tai Chi Tools for Organisations

 

Energising Tai Chi sessions provide a unique format for group participation and both invigorate and stimulate participants. Extended periods of mental concentration are greatly enhanced by simple gentle exercise. Tai Chi brings the unique atmosphere of the orient and combines relaxation and exercise to really help groups to focus and work well together.

 

 

Ben Milton uses his Tai Chi experience, gained here in the UK, China and the USA over forty five years, to motivate and stimulate the group to achieve cohesion and relaxation. He has run seminars and presentation for industry leading organisations both here in the UK and overseas. He has a background in business and is comfortable expressing ideas to clients up to board level.

 

The sessions are suited to any size of group and can form an early morning session or works well after lunch to invigorate the delegates (often when other forms of non-participation don’t work well).

 

Tai Chi offers an exercise format that is not dependant on any special equipment and is perfectly suited to participants wearing normal clothes. As such, many people will find it an enjoyable and refreshing exercise regardless of their own level of fitness.

 

A typical session is focused on developing skills useful in the business environments, for example:

 

– Stillness and mind body centring, essential prior to meetings and presentations, incorporating both breathing and movement techniques.

– Posture development, using tai chi techniques to look at correct body posture, both sitting and standing.

 

Ben has undertaken Tai Chi tasters, classes and large group sessions from 6 people to over 300.
