What are the advantages of practising outside at Ramat Hanadiv?
‘According to Taoism and Buddhism, the two central ideologies underlying this martial art, man is a part of nature and his main objective is to return and find his self-nature. Training outside helps us connect to nature. Landscape, trees, and open landscapes have a positive effect on the state of our consciousness; therefore, the Chinese usually practice Tai Chi in parks. They believe that this landscape introduces happiness and life and releases the heart. It’s also better to practice barefoot, because when we stand, a kind of earthing takes place – a connection to the foundations of the earth, grounding. The fresh air, trees, and green landscape at Ramat Hanadiv and the clean, tidy space, are a kind of mirror, a beneficial effect of reflection from the outside in’.
If this conversation with Ojas has piqued your curiosity, and physical and mental tranquillity and calmness are exactly what you need right now – you’re welcome to try out a class and feel the beneficial effect for yourself.
