Classes with Jos Hadfield

T’ai Chi is a wonderful way to find balance within our own selves and the world we live in. It opens our channels of energy, softening the body, letting the breath through and freeing the mind.

Exploring the interplay of yin and yang, we can feel for tightness and softness, let go unnecessary effort and reveal inner spaciousness and harmony.

Working with the rhythms and harmonies that underpin and inform our natural world it promotes a greater sense of wellbeing. 

Jos was inspired to start T’ai Chi after watching it being demonstrated on Dartmoor over twenty five years ago.
She started teaching T’ai Chi at adult education classes, and continues to run classes locally. Jos is still learning from Tew Bunnag and her fellow teachers within the European School of T’ai Chi Chuan, as well as from direct observation of the elemental forces in nature.

Jos is a committee member and past Chair of the European School of T’ai Chi Ch’uan (ESTCC)

Having moved to Cornwall she still offers weekly group classes, one to one sessions and residential workshops at Roselidden Farm, Helston

Over the years her personal practice has broadened to include sitting meditation and Zen Brushwork, learned in the UK and Japan from the late Terayama Tanchū Sensei.

Zen Brushwork

 

 

The Way of the Zen Brush is a form of calligraphy based on the principles of Zen, a means of expressing the relationship between the mind, body and universe.

‘To draw lines of unfettered simplicity, to reveal nothing special, with no particular beauty, only an uncommon ease that transcends our understanding of space and time.’       Hakuin (1688 – 1768)

 

 

Jos leads workshops at Roselidden, Exeter and London throughout the year.

These one day workshops draw from the Zen tradition of calligraphy.

Using energy raising exercises (yōkihō) and sitting (zazen), the focus throughout the practice is to relax body/mind and allow ki (energy) to flow freely.
