Tai Chi is the Chinese art of systematic body movement designed to achieve physical, mental and spiritual harmony. Join Ken, our Tai Chi teacher with 10 years of experience leading traditional Tai Chi classes, for a warm welcome and high quality tuition.

This course will give you a step by step guide to achieving calm, fitness and balance and can also be practised for its health benefits including:

  • Improves posture, flexibility and balance.
  • Reduces stress and promotes mental wellbeing.
  • Lowers blood pressure.
  • Strengthens and tones muscles.
  • Increase energy levels.
  • Can help to control Type 2 diabetes.

Each class begins with meditation and moves on to a series of gentle exercises moving on to practice the form (routine) and end with breathing exercises. This class caters for all abilities, including people with mobility problems. There are qualified assistant instructors who help with training.
