Benefits & student feedback

There are many studies on the benefits of Tai Chi & Qigong.


Although some of the most profound effects on your well-being can be subtle, and difficult to quantify, some of the well documented benefits are;

  • Improved mobility

  • Improved balance and coordination

  • Decreased pain


  • Improved circulation


  • Releasing physical and emotional trauma


  • Improved energy levels


  • Improved sleep


  • Calming and strengthening the nervous system


  • Strengthening and supporting the immune system


  • Relieving stress

I use an anonymous survey tool to get feedback from my students, so that classes and courses can be improved.

This is some of the feedback.

“It has benefited my health greatly, my peace of mind and my whole well-being, with a lot of help from James”


“More confidence with myself and time for myself and my body”

“The classes have really helped with my health issues (chronic fatigue and lower back problems). The classes have helped with both my physical and mental health. I leave the class calm, relaxed and rejuvenated”

“Like-minded students and an instructor who cares for each individual. My health and well-being has improved beyond my imagination”

“It teaches me to look after myself, to get to know my body. I feel the best I have felt in a really long time, despite generally leading a healthy lifestyle. It leads you to open other doors, to keep developing. I am (very, very slowly) learning to let go”


“My balance and co-ordination have improved massively”

“I particularly appreciate that whilst delivering the class James is interested and responsive to our individual needs. The classes are fun too”

“James has been a superb teacher since I started attending his classes 3 years ago. His enthusiasm, throughout that time has been infectious and his encouragement and concern helped all of his students, whatever their ability”

“I have felt more flexible and agile. I am able to balance and walk more confidently”

“I have been to a number of Tai Chi and Qigong classes, and this has been the best, encouraging me to continue”
