Over 50+ Tai-Chi class is a new system of teaching Tai Chi and Chi Gong that is designed to help maximise the health benefit of Tai-Chi. Many scientific reports and evidence have found that Tai-Chi can help physical and mental stress. 
Those classes are very popular and have occasionally a waiting list.

Advanced Tai-Chi

About Tai-Chi

Finding your path

Chen style Tai-Chi

All of the internal martial arts rely for their effectiveness on internal power - the power cultivated by the alignment and coordination of the whole body and will. Essentially martial in nature, these arts are practised by most people for their health-giving properties rather than just for self-defence. Ultimately, each of us has our own path in life and the practice of Internal Martial Arts can help us find this path and give us the ability and health to travel it to its fullest.

In our Tai-Chi class and Chi gong class you will experience first-hand the energy and vitality of the Chi.

Chen Style Tai-Chi

Tai Chi symbol Chen Village

Chen Style is the original style of Taijiquan from which the Yang style and all the other styles developed. While the other Taijiquan styles enjoyed ever-increasing popularity with the inevitable shift away from the martial side, the Chen style was practised in relative obscurity in Chen village and thus retained more of the original flavour. It contains a wide range of movements - from the slow and graceful to the explosively fast. The martial aspects of this form are more recognizable and it contains many techniques and moves not found in other styles. In our Tai-Chi class we benefit from the vast knowledge of Chen style Tai chi and Chi gong silk reeling to implement it in our practice. 

Internal Martial Art

Japan Dragon

Taijiquan or Tai Chi Chuan(Yin Yang boxing, sometimes translated as Great Ultimate boxing) is the best-known style of the Internal Martial Arts. 
The most famous part of Taijiquan is the moving exercises, known as the Taiji Form, which is a series of slow, continuous and flowing movements with unhurried breathing.  All movements are done with calm concentration, which is why it is often called meditation in motion. When done correctly, the practitioner's body can develop as a whole without any parts being ignored or exhausted - in other words: the practice of Taijiquan reaches parts other exercises do not reach.
The essence of Taijiquan and chi gong is to integrate the mind, body, and spirit with neither having preference over the other. With continued practice of Tai Chi, one's health inevitably improves.  Join us in our Tai-Chi Class and see the difference.

Qigong (Chi Kung)

Five elements of chines medicine

Qigong or Chi Gong is a system of exercises for the cultivation of Qi. Qi can be translated into energy and Gong as practice. A common thread in all these practices is the emphasis on using mind. Most exercises are done with a great deal of (relaxed) concentration and very little of physical movement. But movement is present all the time - even when the practitioner seems perfectly still. In Chen Style Tai Chi we concentrate on the silk reeling Chi Gong with its fine smooth movement and gentle and yet power-full set of movement with its mediative and healing results.

Recently, there has been quite a lot of research done on the health benefits of Taijiquan. Qigong research is just starting, but the first indications are that unsurprisingly, the benefits are similar. 

Tai-Chi Health Benefits

Yin Yang and De Vinchi

Tai-Chi and Chi gong, which is also known as a 'whole body therapy', is becoming increasingly popular, not just because of the ease and gentleness of the exercise, but also for the many amazing health benefits that people report after starting this traditional Chinese wellness practice.
Not only do they report feeling lighter on feet, stronger legs, more focused, alert, less stressed and more relaxed, but specific benefits including lowered blood pressure, less arthritic pain, increased strength, less joint stiffness, improved balance and flexibility, higher bone density in menopausal women, and very important to  reduced falls.
A recent BBC online article, referring to arthritis, reported that most complementary therapies do not work, however, Tai-Chi was one of 3 out of 25 trailled therapies with enough medical evidence to show that it does help this condition. They also found that out of 53 trials of 14 different therapies, among 6000 patients, only Tai Chi and Acupuncture appeared to work. Tai Chi can also help fibromyalgia.
The incredible benefit of doing Tai-Chi is that it is suitable for all ages, shapes and sizes and fitness levels.
All you need is to wear comfy clothes for our Tai-Chi class.
Tai chi itself consists of slow- flowing, choreographed, meditative movements with poetic names like 'wave hands like clouds', and 'dragons stirring up the wind' that evoke the natural world.
These movements, which are easy and fun to do in a group, create focus in the mind, body and breathe, encouraging the flow of 'Qi', the balance of energy in the body, which is thought to activate the body's natural self- healing systems.

Seminars & Retreats

Meditation Retreats Radical Tao

image14

As demand for stillness grows and the need for people to change their habits and their lifestyle, I have introduced a program for learning Chi Gong meditation now running successfully for the last 2 year. The art of meditation requires a longer process together to delve into the deep and simple workings of this mindfulness technique, which cannot always be reached in our weekly Tai Chi classes.  At  our  retreats , we will have 3 hours to experience and practice together and deepen our relationship of stillness, settling down and relaxing in a stress-free environment. 
Places are limited, and booking is essential. As we are deepening our work together, a commitment to learn and practice will be required. Therefore I suggest attending at least 5 out of the 12 retreats a year to reap the full benefits of this process (although 12 would be better!). 
Retreat dates all commencing at 10:30 am and finishing at 13:30
