Programme for the month of October

NEW - Tai Chi of the 5 Elements – Tuesday, October 27

This one-time workshop is the ideal opportunity to become familiar with the beauty and health benefits of Tai Chi.

Through the slow, flowing movements of the Wu Sing form, we will call upon the strength of the five elements - earth, air/wood, fire, water and metal to help harmonize and maintain the life energy or Chi of the body.

Used as a form of preventive medicine to help the mind as well as the body, practicing on a regular basis can increase energy, release tension, strengthen the immune system, improve balance and help your mind's ability to concentrate and think more clearly.

Tai Chi is good for any one at any age!

This workshop will be offered by Linda Wenzek-Barth, a German-American
Naturopath who spent 2 1/2 years living and working in Beijing, China in the late '80s.

Investment: € 25

Festival “Suc de Taronja” - Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from October 9th to 11th

Come and celebrate our 12th birthday!

For 12 years Sa Taronja, a non-profit cultural association located in an old chicken farm in Andratx, has been a vibrant centre for the arts. Surrounded by gardens and orange orchards, the old Majorcan house and out-buildings are home to a theatre, galleries, dance hall, artists studios, and a restaurant. The centre, true to the community it serves, provides multicultural events throughout the year.

Sa Taronja is unlike any other centre in Mallorca and brings something extra to the cultural and social scene. It's a place to create and to enjoy the creativity of others, a place to meet friends and make friends, open and welcoming to all ages and nationalities, offering an artistic experience that ranges from the elite to the popular.

So help celebrate our 12th birthday by coming to our fundraising festival "Suc de Taronja” and bringing in new friends and members. Members are the "Suc" - the "Juice" that keeps us going. With your support, we plan on reaching our 25th birthday! Come and celebrate with us! Squeeze yourself for Art!
