What classes are like?

Classes have a relaxed, informative and informal atmosphere and are suitable for everyone regardless of their age, health condition or ability. Classes are open to everyone.

How I teach

This style of Tai Chi focuses on the internal and meditative aspects to promote inner health, well-being and calmness. Students are gently taught the necessary fundamental elements of tai chi for example; the correct body alignment, balance, breathing and posture which slowly develops over time. Form movements are gradually introduced as students learn each sequence. This enables students to explore and feel the movements thus increasing body and mind awareness and how they individually experience tai chi.
