Physiotherapy for Body & Mind
Classes work as an effective and thorough, whole body and mind physiotherapy session.
My goal is to teach you the basic principles of this ancient art form, and give you the tools and support to be able to bring these principles into your own life, in the pursuit of a healthier, happier body and mind.
Class Structure & Content
Classes vary from 60 to 90 minute lessons, split into different sections. All the different ‘skills’ of Tai Chi are complementary and class content varies depending on the experience of the class and length of the session.
Tai Chi loosening exercises
Simple qigong exercises
Tai chi walking
Yang Style 37 Step Tai Chi Form
You will undoubtedly find some of the exercises easy, and some challenging and my aim is to continue to challenge you enough physically & mentally to retrain your movement and focus, to stimulate real change over time.
The Qigong practiced in class is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, Five Element Theory & Practice, sometimes referred to as Medical Qigong.
These exercises are practiced to strengthen and balance the bodies energy system, strengthen the physical body, release physical and emotional stress and improve postural and functional alignments, giving a strong foundation for health & our development within tai chi.
Outdoor classes are scheduled at 1 hour. After this initial hour you will have the opportunity for additional group or individual practice should you wish.
This extra time allows us to explore aspects of tai chi that you may wish to develop further, such as the form, or tai chi walking, and allows us space to have a chat about aspects of our training.
Due to concerns over the spread of Coronavirus, we are following NHS & government guidelines to ensure the safety of all participants.
2 metre distancing
No physical posture adjustments
Online/Bank transfer payments only
We will also be switching to a shorter, quicker to learn form called 'The Healing Form' so that students who are unable to leave the house can practice in a confined space
