Tai Chi for Beginners - we offer two types of classes

1. Tai Chi for Health: "Tai Chi Qigong"

The first Qigong exercises are thought to be more than 5000 years old. Tai Chi-Qigong Exercise is a proven Art and is still the Chinese People's way of staying healthy. 


According to Chinese Medicine, of which Qigong Exercise is a part, all illness - be it mental, emotional or physical - arises when one's energy system is out of balance. Difficulty sleeping, frequent colds, stress, fatigue and pain are common indicators that there is a problem with one's energy system. Qigong movements have been devised by Chinese Doctors and practitioners to return the energy flow to normal.  


Classes employ a 'follow me' format with lots of repetition and explanations. Expect to feel energised, looser, more relaxed and happier.


We offer separate classes for beginners and improvers. Weekly attendance is preferred but not essential. Suitable for people of all levels of ability, although at the present time we do not offer seated exercise - you will need to be able to stand for an hour

  

Come and try a class - you'll be glad that you did :)

2. Tai Chi Martial Arts: "Chen Style Tai Chi Chuan"

Tai Chi Chu'an is based on the same theories as Qigong (above) but was developed about 500 years ago purely as a fighting Art.  


It is based on leading hardness to emptiness, which means instead of fighting force with force, you borrow the opponents strength to put them at a disadvantage. This takes a considerable period of training, to train the body to move and respond in a soft, circular way, rolling to the incoming force like a ball rolling downhill. It requires regular  weekly attendance in class and practice at home. 


We provide DVDs and books by Cherry's teacher to assist you in home pratice. You need to be in relatively good health, without any knee issues in order to join our Chen Style Tai Chi Chuan classes.  Students must also be willing to put in some mental and physical effort (self discipline)
