For those interested in the Martial Arts aspects of Tai Chi, you will not be disappointed.  Sifu Michael Paler is excited to share his vast knowledge of Tai Chi Chuan with you.  There will be no secrets kept!  He will personally spend time teaching and instructing small groups, and demonstrating the more advanced Martial applications and training methods.  In Tai Chi Chuan training, there is no pure hardness without softness; there is no pure softness without hardness.  ~Tai Chi Classics
This isn’t your ordinary retreat, but more of a Tai Chi rejuvenation.  Delicious healthy, organic, inspired meals nourish and sustain you for your stay with us, while our Tai Chi, Meditation, Sound Healing, Qigong (breathing) and Organic Cooking workshops take you into a deep state of well being and inner peace. So feel free to indulge in a healthy muffin or a hot cup of coffee or tea as well!
This retreat will offer a whole new level of Mind/Body & Nature connection.  Be as relaxed or as active as you like during your learning vacation, with optional activities such as mountain hikes, mountain biking, and kayaking Or indulge in a little pampering with a massage  Of course, after a healing Tai Chi class, you can always choose to relax by the lake with a good book. 
This retreat, in the lineage of our esteemed Master Wei Xilan “Imperial Yang Family Tai Chi,” taught by Sifu Michael Paler, 7th Generation Lineage Holder, and senior students.
