This AUTUMN 2020 flyer has dates of our next FREE taster classes  

All levels cost £100 for a term of 10 weeks (OAPs etc £85) 

Proposed classes will be confirmed after week 1. Timings allow for a few minutes changeover between classes.

Beginners Level 

This level of classes introduces the principles of Tai Chi and teaches the movements of the 37 posture short form in three "thirds", ie B1, B2 & B3. Each third is taught  in a 10 week term, in bite size chunks each week. 

Fundamentals Level
  

Fundamentals level reviews the Beginners level form with a focus on truly embodying the core principles of Tai Chi in your personal practice. It works on the internal experience (vs external appearance) of each move. 

Sensing Hands

Also described as "Push Hands", this pairs practice teaches us how we can stay relaxed in contact with others. We connect and respond to them, without feeling anxious or threatened by them. It's a great practice for real life!  

Intermediate Level

Intermediate level smooths out the transitions between individual postures, so the form becomes one continuous flowing movement. This makes minor changes to the form, and a big change to the internal experience of practice.
