Stay Connected! is an online video library and live Zoom session service which we originally provided to help our students through the recent difficult times of self-isolation lack of social contact. Practising Tai Chi and Qigong is a great way to keep healthy and focused on the positive. We do not intend to charge for these practice videos, but rather invite participants to make a voluntary contribution if they are in a position to do so.

Stay Connected! is available to anyone who completes a registration process with us. If you are registered with us but have not received an email, please contact us, otherwise you can find out a little more here.

Student Quotes...

...what our students say

“Thank you so much for my wonderful lesson yesterday, the work we were able to do with physical contact to adjust my posture and enable energy to flow was just brilliant.” - Penny


"I have found your online offerings to be a real gift and huge benefit to me in my practice. Your offerings have been the primary source of my learning this year and I've really felt my personal understanding of this work deepen with our one on one sessions and the foundational recordings from Sam Maisch.“ - Oskar

“ I really enjoyed the new experience of Qi Gong. It made me feel calm and centred. I am now actively seeking to attend classes but am practising what I learnt from Jane at home regularly” - Debbie

"Each morning, I have a cup of tea, biscuit and painkillers and do my tai chi routine before getting dressed. It really makes a difference to my arrhythmia, arthritis and energy! I would love to do more!” - N.H.

We're so glad you are enjoying it!

Welcome to Longwater Tai Chi

Jane and Patrick Foley primarily teach Tai Chi as a relaxing, enjoyable exercise. Its slow, meditative movements are practised by millions of people for their proven health benefits. We both switched from successful careers to spread our love of Tai Chi. Between us we have over 60 years of experience in the art. We teach regular classes and workshops in Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset UK and sometimes further afield.

We have a broad curriculum and teach traditional Tai Chi (taijiquan), its ancient sister art Qigong, and Meditation in various ways to suit different levels of interest and ability. Our main focus is to nourish the body, mind and spirit and lead you to a life of better health and wellbeing.  Read more about what we teach from our curriculum pages. If you are a beginner and want to know what might suit you best, please visit our beginners page or contact us.

We also still regularly attend both local and international events with our main teachers Master Sam Masich and Master Bruce Frantzis.

 

Indoor Exercise & Living with Covid

The government has now lifted all restrictions on indoor exercise classes. We will continue to maintain good ventilation and restrict numbers of participants so that rooms don't get crowded.

We strongly recommend you book your class and pay in advance to guarantee your place.

Private Lessons

If you are interested in studying one-to-one with a Longwater teacher, we are also offering both online private lessons and lessons in our home studio. We also offer small group lessons in the studio for up to 3 people.

These give you a fast track method of progressing in your practices. One hour of a teacher’s direct attention is also worth many hours of attendance in a regular class. To register for a lesson please click here.
