Welcome to Sun River Taiji info site, drawing its name from the beautiful river Exe where the class venues are closely situated . Here you will find class details and some information about the Taiji i'm teaching.

Not all Taiji is the same.

Weekly classes to nourish the body and mind and return to the place of stillness and clarity from which daily life can draw us away from.

The lineage is of the Master Huang Shen Shyan tradition whose teacher was Cheng Man Ching.

Attending a 6 week introduction course is recommended  to give you the chance to experience the qualities and benefits of Tai Chi , and to learn the fundamentals of posture and movement. Once completed we continue with learning the Cheng Man Ching  37 posture Short Form.


Practice each posture , upright relaxed and stable.

be accurate with the transition movements between postures.Keep the mind soft and un-busy.

all principles of movement are in the form.

What is Tai Chi?

An effective internal practice to maintain the health of mind and body- longevity, harmonising mind and body thru regular practice, a moving meditation and an art to circulate internal energy.

What to expect in a class?

The class always begins with a closing down and quietening of the mind.

A few gentle stretches to open the body,

then accurate " loosening exercises" developed by Master Huang Shen Shyan of Malaysia, followed by learning the Short Form..........

finishing with a short meditation.

What should i wear?

wearing loose unrestricting clothing is best with flat trainers or bare feet.

Or just your favourite t-shirt and jeans...just so long as you are comfortable moving for an hour or so...

The Form

The Form ;  central to all styles of Taiji is the Form.

Once the initial choreography of the postures has be learnt , the more subltle sequential, internal changes can be added.

The form we practice is the 37 posture Cheng man Ching form 

Practice = Understanding
