Food

Tai chi, like Chinese medicine, is all about balance. Good health is maintained by, amongst other things, the ingredients which we take in as food, and the way in which we expend energy.

The chef is a master of the work and adheres to these principles. Every day, teachers and students enjoy a well-balanced diet cooked in the traditional Chinese style and made from ingredients which are sourced fresh every day from the local farmers’ market. Each meal contains a large choice of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes.

Food is not just important for its ingredients, but also for the way you eat, and in China it is hard to imagine eating without sharing. Everybody sits around the same table to share the ingredients of a meal eaten in common. Eating in China is a social event, so that while you eat together, you share experiences from all walks of life, all ages, and every part of the world.
