Learn the 'big four' TMW movements

This course is for graduates of the TMW 12-move Flex sequence and will introduce you to four new movements which make up the TMW Full Protocol.

These additional movements will help to introduce an added depth to your TMW practice. The movements have a particular focus on introducing a balancing quality, connecting the left and right sides of the body and brain. They also bring a greater focus on cultivating energy and stabalising it within the body.

Over the three weeks of the course we will introduce two new movements per week and the final sessions will bring everything together:

  • Week One – 4 July
    Diagonal Repatterning and Two Dragons Wrapping
  • Week Two – 11 July
    Wave Hands Like Clouds and Rolling Chi Ball
  • Week Three – 18 July
    Deepen and Refine

To get the best from the course you will be invited to maintain a regular home practice between the sessions and a recording of the full sixteen move sequence will be provided.

YOUR TEACHER

He has been practicing meditation in the Chinese Zen Buddhist tradition for over two decades, teaching meditation and leading day retreats with the Western Chan Fellowship.

Stuart has participated in a variety of mindfulness programmes and is a Trained Teacher in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) with Bangor University’s Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice.

This workshop revolutionized my running. I stopped listening to music whilst running and instead started paying attention to my feet, body and the surroundings. I started forefoot running and adjusted my posture, which means I have been injury free since then. No more shin splints and itb pain.
