Approach to classes
Stretch Tai Chi classes are designed for anyone who wants to do enjoyable exercise in a class that is gentle, encouraging and non-judgmental.
The approach is not about being perfect at tai chi but simply doing lovely movements to the best of your ability that will help you in the ways you want.
Our classes are based mostly on the Hun Yuan style of tai chi. We focus primarily on simple movements that will assist with improving flexibility, stability, balance and strength. It may also help with your sleep, help with inflammation in the body and give you a feeling of calm.
Our classes do not teach the tai chi form. However, these classes would provide a solid foundation for anyone considering learning the full tai chi form.

Tai Chi Facilitator
I began learning tai chi in 2003, and I was drawn to the slow flowing movements, and the surprising effect it had on me.
I have 30 years experience as a professional trainer, teacher and facilitator. I have am a qualified assistant cross-country ski instructor and I have many years of teaching dance classes in the past. Somehow, teaching tai chi basics seemed like the next logical step.
I love to share what I know, I love to help others and my aim is to keep moving and stay well. Oh, the music & outdoors is a lovely bonus.
