This 6-week introductory course is designed to give beginners a good basic understanding and insight in to the ancient Chinese art of Tai Chi – Strong Body, Still Mind. (What is Tai Chi?)
New students attend one 60 minute lesson per week over a period of Six weeks. Each lesson consists of Chi Kung – a standing meditation and a set of moving conditioning exercises. After that is the Tai Chi form, a series of Tai Chi postures and sequences. In each lesson there is a new Tai Chi sequence to be learned following on from the previous week. Therefore, attending every lesson of the 6-week course and practicing at home between classes is strongly encouraged. In the final lessons of the 6-week course, in order to experience Tai Chi principles in practice, there is the option of staying on longer for partner work.
Classes are designed to be fun and we provide a supportive, friendly atmosphere in which to learn this marvellous Chinese holistic martial art. For more details see: (What to expect in a class?)
