Mindful Tai Chi
Tai Chi originated in China as a martial art and translated means "ultimate exercise".
Mindful Tai Chi aims to make Tai Chi accessible to as wide a range of people as possible. As well as classes for the general public we also offer specific sessions for people with a variety of health related issues.
There is a strong and expanding research base detailing the beneficial effects of Tai Chi for a number of chronic health problems and we offer bespoke groups for those with balance and mobility difficulties, stress and anxiety, Dementia, Parkinson's Disease and arthritis. Students with insomnia, depression, high blood pressure, asthma and COPD also report improvements in their conditions from attending Mindful Tai Chi groups.
Workshops are also available in corporate and educational fields and for the Tai Chi student interested to learn the Long Form, Broadsword, Spear, Push Hands and the original Fast Form.
Mindful Tai Chi reflects an approach to teaching and learning based on the central importance of conscious awareness of movement. In this process real changes can be made that will beneficially support the best possible functional movement in a relaxed and calm state.
