Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain offering tai chi at ancient Puzhao Temple

by Jane Kitchen | 19 Apr 2016

Guests at Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain can now take part in tai chi at Puzhao Temple, a Qing Dynasty Buddhist temple set in the mountains that took more than 200 years to complete.

Guests are driven to Puzhao Temple, which is 20 minutes from the resort. Upon arrival, they are greeted by a tai chi master who has trained under Liu Sui Bin, one of the most famous tai chi grandmasters in China.

During the one-hour experience, the tai chi master teaches guests introductory breathing exercises and movements that form the basis of the martial art, while peacocks – which are cared for by the temple monks – stroll past.

The master teaches a particular style of tai chi which found its origins in the area and was named Qing Cheng Tai Chi Six Moves.

“Tai chi is one of China’s most fascinating art forms,” said Six Senses Qing Cheng Mountain general manager Manish Puri. “And the Puzhao Temple with its deep rooted history, pristine ambiance, and perfect feng shui make this the ideal place to learn this healthy and spiritual exercise. Having been there myself many times it is not only for the tai chi but also for the history, religion and culture. I always light some incense sticks and perform a short prayer in the temples just after finishing the tai chi exercise."

Guests who book the package will receive the tai chi class, a Zen tea ceremony in the temple’s tea house, a Chinese vegetarian breakfast with organic fresh juices, tai chi dress and shoes and private car transfers.

The Qing Cheng Mountain resort features a 10-treatment-room, 18,400sq ft (1,710sq m) Six Senses Spa with waterfall and garden views that draws on the area’s Taoist roots, incorporating traditional Chinese medicine elements into its treatments.
