You will learn some Tai Chi Form-an ancient Chinese way of moving that brings benefits to both body and mind. To really enjoy the benefits, participants are encouraged to practise between classes. Wear comfortable clothing and flat shoes.
What can students expect?
Learners can expect a friendly class, flexible to their needs. Tai Chi exercises can be adapted so that everyone can join in regardless of levels of fitness. The warming up exercises are very gentle. Other exercises are taught that explore underlying principles of Tai Chi: posture, balance, relaxation, mind focus, body awareness, coordination.
Late starters allowed?
Wear loose comfortable clothing and flat shoes.
What is the progression route?
Learners can progress to Intermediate Tai Chi or continue in this class but learn more movements of the form and practise with greater depth of understanding and a higher level of skill.
Are there any extra costs?
Are there any set books?
No, we use YouTube clips and handouts.
Work set between sessions?
Optional but learners are encouraged to practise between classes to get the most benefit from their learning.
Friendly relaxed class with opportunities to chat to other participants and ask questions. Very interactive. Exercises mostly taught by demonstration and explanation, then following the tutor. Some small group work, work in pairs and eventually solo work. Correction by the tutor.
