Chi Kung & Tai Chi week in Andalusia
9. - 16. October 2022 in the Finca El Morisco with Sifu Thomas Apfel
The perfect place to relax
After an intensive search for a suitable venue, we finally found the perfect place for our long-planned Chi Kung wellness week: the newly built Finca El Morisco in Benajarafe. At our visit in January 2020, the construction work was just about to be completed.
We've been immediately excited about the location: just 20 km East of Málaga, at the end of a valley which opens to the sea. The coherent concept convinced us:
Vegetarian meals, partially from biological cultivation farming. Breakfast buffet: till 11 o'clock, open buffet during the day, dinner buffet: 19 till 20 o'clock. Beverages and drinks such as tea, coffee, water, freshly pressed orange juice, wine and beer are included in full board and lodging prices.
Accomodation in air-conditioned double bedrooms with shower. Single room use available for extra charge.
Spacious, light-flooded training room.
WLAN/WiFi in the outdoor area.
Swimming pool and Sauna available on premises.
Location on a hill, ca. 25 minutes to the beach by foot. Transport by minibus can be arranged on site.
Sundays: transfer to and from airport Málaga, five times between 7 o'clock in the morning and 20 o'clock in the evening.
Rental cars can be booked on site. Moreover, a minibus can be arranged for individual tours - for example to Málaga, Marbella, Puerto Banús, Gibraltar, Ronda, stalactite caves of Nerja, Alhambra in Granada.
The perfect programme to feel comfortable
On Monday, Tuesday , Thursday, Friday and Saturday, we're training Chi Kung and Tai Chi in the morning and in the late afternoon, each 1,5 to 2 hours.
Instructions will be given in German and English. The training is suitable for beginners, as well as experienced students.
For Wednesday, we're planning a day tour and will agree on the destinations with participants on site.
Sunday is arrival and departure day.
The Chi Kung training includes the 1+5 elements of Zhan Zhuang Kung in static and dynamic forms, as well as Ba Duan Jin and Golden Ball Tai Chi.
In the Tai Chi training, participants without previous experience will learn the Small Circle Form of Master Lam. For advanced students, this week is an excellent opportunity to refine and improve their own Tai Chi practice.
Partners who just like to enjoy the Finca and Andalusia, and who don't want to participate in the Chi Kung und Tai Chi classes, are very welcome.
