GOOGLE LOCATION MAP
Classes are 45 minutes with 5 parts:
Slow tai chi
Tai chi body
Static stretching, and;
Qi gong standing practice to finish.
The content of each class will vary each week to suit each class.
Each part is demonstrated first and then repeated to music before moving on to the next part. This means you will be learning each part first, then doing. You are not expected to remember all the movement at each class.
FOUNDATION TAI CHI MOVEMENTS
You will learn the basic tai chi standing position and other key elements of tai chi movement, breathing and focus.
All classes are to music, which assists with the timing and flow of the movement. The music is designed not to distract from the concentration of practicing tai chi, stretching and Qi gong standing practice.
All positions are done standing; there are no floor/ mat exercises.
can be provided to anyone needing to either hold on for balance or to sit down at any time during the class.
If the weather is unsuitable for outdoors, classes will be located INDOORS. Participants will be contacted by SMS text before each class to confirm arrangements.
WHAT TO WEAR
