PLYMSTOCK GENTLE TAI CHI AND QIGONG

BEGINNERS CLASS 

Tuesdays

12.15pm-1.15pm

If you're looking for a welcoming, friendly beginners class then look no further. We'll start each class with some gentle warm-ups, specifically chosen to help you to grasp some of the basic principles of Tai Chi. You will then be guided through a simple Qigong routine. Qigong encourages good health by promoting the flow of our natural energy or Chi, it connects us with our breath and allows us to relax deeply. Midway through the class we sit for a short guided relaxation, an opportunity to clear your mind and engage with your body and breath (and hopefully not fall asleep!) After some gentle encouragement to find your feet, we'll take a look at the 8 Posture Tai Chi Form. This is a short an accessible beginners form (sequence of movements) which will allow you to begin to understand the fundamental principles of Tai Chi. Learning Tai Chi is a challenge, even for the most coordinated of us, but we aim to make your learning enjoyable and enriching. We will all be working within our own limitations, without judgement or expectation.

TAI CHI FOR THOSE WITH MS - TRINITY UNITED REFORMED CHURCH HALL, TORR LANE, HARTLEY

Thursdays

1pm-2pm

This class is run through the MS Society for the benefit of those with MS. The class is slow paced and provides an opportunity for participants to benefit from the gentle movement and breath-work of Tai Chi and Qigong. I regularly receive positive feedback from participants about how much Tai Chi helps with movement, stability and maintaining fitness. Members of the group also report they feel more relaxed and this helps them to cope better with their daily lives. Movements can be done either seated or standing depending on need. At the end of the class I offer around 5 mins of Shiatsu/massage to each member to help ease any aches and pains. There is also the opportunity to stay for tea, biscuits and a chat after the class.

Pay weekly on a drop-in basis for £4 a session
