Tai Chi and Qigong

About Tai Chi and Qigong

Tai Chi is a Chinese martial art which is now practised for health and wellbeing of the body and mind. The slow, gentle, non-impact movements help to maintain flexibility of the joints, improve balance and co-ordination, strengthen the body and relax the mind.

Who can participate?

The exercises are suitable for all ages and can be tailored to suit an individual’s ability. Simon teaches according to the ability of the student, this means that anyone can come along, whether a total novice or very experienced and gain some benefit from the lesson. You will learn at your own pace and as there is no form of grading or qualification, you don’t need to be there every week. Some people may attend classes twice a week while others will attend once a month.

What do I need?

All you require is comfortable clothing and footwear. You only pay for the lessons you attend on the day and there is no commitment or up-front payment.

About the Instructor

Simon has been studying Tai chi and Qigong for thirty years, learning Yang Style Tai Chi, Classical Sword Form and various Qigong exercises.

“I come from a background of both health and martial arts and although I teach the exercises for health, combining the two enables me to bring an understanding of the basic principles of why a movement is performed.”

Simon is a registered instructor with the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain (TCUGB).
