Workshops

In collaboration with Centre for Continuing Education, the Confucius Institute at the University of Regina offers a series of workshops. These workshops are designed for those with an interest in Chinese culture and want to learn it in an interactive way. Not only can you get new thoughts about Chinese food and arts, but also you can learn some practical skills. We have highly qualified instructors and we will also have everything set up for you. Just come and have fun!

Chinese Taichi Workshop

The Chinese characters for Tai Chi can be translated as the “Supreme Ultimate Force.” The notion of “supreme ultimate” is often associated with the Chinese concept of yin-yang, the notion that one can see a dynamic duality (male/female, active/passive, dark/light, forceful/yielding, etc.) in all things. There are a number of so-called forms (sometimes also called 'sets') which consist of a sequence of movements. Movements performed in Tai Chi are slow, soft, and graceful with smooth and even transitions between them. We will hold a series of Tai Chi workshops in which you will learn its basic postures and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of nature.
