Charity information

Otley Lishi Arts

Otley Lishi Arts is a registered charity that aims to promote education through Chinese movement and dance activities that also enhance health and wellbeing.

Founded 2006

  • Mission statement

    Otley Lishi Arts establishes, promotes and delivers community classes, within the community of Otley, teaching the Daoist arts from China. Lishi is short for Weihai Lishi Quanfa which means that it is an activity similar to Tai Chi 'Quan', it comes from 'Weihai' in the Shandong region of China and was passed through generations of people with the family surname 'Li'.

    Otley Lishi Arts is open to young people and adults from all backgrounds and aims to improve people's health and quality of life using Daoist practise as the tool to do so. The Lishi method has continued for thousands of years because it works and recent external evaluations of projects based on Lishi have proven it still works (and is needed more) in today's hectic world.
