7.15pm  Beginners Tai Chi and Qigong

Whether completely new to tai chi and qigong or continuing your journey, this class teaches the common principles of training and the first basic tai chi form that is the foundation for all further traditional study.

8.15pm  Tai Chi Sword and Qigong

The two person sword form shouldn't be done whilst making light sabre noises, but sometimes we can't help it... This class includes a study of the 13 Energies of Sword including classical sword drills and fun. A knowledge of Star Wars references isn't required.

9.30am  All levels Tai Chi

This daytime class is a mixed ability group with complete beginners and some with a few year's experience all training together. At times the group will split to focus on particular areas as required and enable more personalised learning.

We focus on a combination of qigong for health and the soft flowing movements of the first tai chi form.

10.30 Qigong, Meditation and Internal Development

Where tai chi is the art of flow and harmony, qigong is the skill of health and happiness. Through both we discover our natural body and movement, gaining peace, health and stillness of mind.

This class will train traditional qigong in stillness and movement, including zhan zhuang and Yang Family baduanjin.

Although recommended as an additional class (to the tai chi class at 9.30, for example) for those with a deeper interest in internal, meditative and health arts, it may also be taken as a class on its own.

11.30 1-2-1 tuition 

This space is for when you would like to deepen your experience of tai chi further in curriculum or skill, or if you are managing a health condition which would benefit from the quieter space and time that individual attention will get you. A great way to do that is personalised, intensive study with Simon. Please get in touch if you feel this would benefit you, other days and times are also available.

£35ph + £15 per extra person + hall hire (£12ph at Penfold Hall).

7.00pm Beginners Tai Chi

Whether completely new to tai chi and qigong or continuing your journey, this class teaches the common principles of training and the first basic tai chi form that is the foundation for all further traditional study. It is often taught in two groups: tai chi and qigong principles are done as a whole group then beginners focus on the 5 section solo form and continuers may also include partner forms (principles, tui shou, san shou) or dagger training. Simon and Brian often split the class between them

8.00pm Traditional Yang Style Tai Chi (forms, tui shou, da lu, san shou)

This class is open to practitioners of all levels but unless well acquainted with the 5 Section Tai Chi program this is taken as an additional class so that it fit's with the wider curriculum we teach (which could also include sword and sabre so bringing your weapons bag is a good idea!).

Whether completely new to tai chi or beginning your tai chi anew, this class teaches the principles of tai chi and the first basic form that is the foundation for all further traditional study.

7.45pm 5 Section Partner Hand Form

The two person form explains the meaning of the solo practice, why the movements and sequence is what it is, how to improve in your tai chi. This class will, over the next year or so, also progress to the traditional sabre form, short sword form and two person sword form (so is a great class to get to if you're interest is in the breadth of tai chi skills as well as the depth).

If you would like to be part of the WhatsApp group which has updates and support materials, please let either Simon or Cher know.
