Physical therapy for body & mind

Classes work as an effective and thorough, whole body and mind physical therapy 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.

Classes include;

  • Tai Chi loosening exercises

  • Standing meditation

 

  • Simple qigong exercises​​

  • 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.

Qigong exercises

Much of 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.
