Join the waiting list to be notified if any places become available.

Learn (or practise) the wonderful art of Tai Chi! Simple movements, easily adapted to suit most individual needs, yet based in profound concepts that keep us always developing and learning more! You will need to be able to be on your feet for most of the session, as the exercises are standing or moving (but you can always have a rest and sit down if you need to.) In general, this course will improve health, balance, overall wellbeing and both calmness and focus of mind. It can also be very joyful! You will also learn some of the principles of Chinese health advice for daily life, as Tai Chi is based in the ancient knowledge of the Chinese healing arts tradition.
