The Deyin Tai Chi & Wellbeing Boot Camps have been a major success offering fantastic health tips as well as wellbeing and mindfulness techniques to hundreds of members and Tai Chi enthusiasts. The Year of the Rat Boot Camp is a unique one, as it is also a celebration of the Chinese New Year of the Rat. What a great way to start the New Year with healthy and fun activities.

This Boot Camp promises to continue this success by offering both our members and other Tai Chi & health enthusiasts more unique ways of improving our physical and mental wellbeing. Best of all it is absolutely free to all Deyin Members. Non members are also welcome to join us on this amazing camp for only £20.

All session instructors are experienced, highly qualified instructor members with in-depth knowledge of Tai Chi and Qigong for health, wellbeing and mindfulness. Therefore, every session of the camp is guaranteed to be an informative, beneficial and soul lifting experience for all enthusiasts.

That is the reason why our previous Boot Camps were booked up so quickly, and we strongly recommend anybody who wants to come to book early to avoid disappointment.

As well as great activities in the day, there will also be an Evening Chinese Meal (optional £13pp) at our centre (or possibly at another venue nearby) to welcome the arrival of the Year of the Rat, a year that brings health, happiness and wellbeing to all.

There will be a raffle draw with fantastic prizes and all proceed will be used to support our future events. We have scheduled a fun and laughter talent show for the evening celebration and invite our members to take part, whether it is goggling, magic show, singing, or even standup comedy.

If any instructor also has an instructor-related topic on which they would like to give a short presentation, like tips for running classes and boosting numbers, or use of social media etc., there may also be time to include it. Again, please contact us as soon as possible with your idea.

Today is also a special day for our Deyin Instructors. We would like as many of our currently qualified instructors to attend as possible, as there are several things we would like to talk about with them, including the new Instructor Training syllabus, and the whole complicated topic of form revalidations.
