Yang Style Tai Chi, Salisbury

In 2018 we will begin teaching the partner form, which is an ideal vehicle for learning how to be sensitive to connections with another person - improving your ability to deal with complex interactions in everyday life as well as improving your Tai Chi solo form work.

This is a tai chi course run in weekly classes of sequential and progressive learning and includes a warmup set, main teaching session and finishes with student led practice with questions. It is based on Yang style Tai Chi.

If you want a much simpler tai chi-qigong exercise class without sequential learning, which is always open to beginners, we also run part of this class as a drop-in, from 6.30-7.15pm. Cost £6 per session.

Classes will run on our standard 5 session block system, but we also welcome beginners to a 45min Tai Chi Qigong warmup at the start of each session.

6.30 - 7.15pm Tai Chi Qigong warmup (beginners welcome at £6).

Tai Chi Qigong, Downton

Based on 'Qigong Shibashi', which means 18 movements, this drop-in class allows anyone interested in understanding more about Tai Chi principles to join in, without the committment of a regular class. With their roots in Tai Chi, these calming and enjoyable movements are very much simpler to follow than the traditional forms but still offer many of the benefits.

The flowing movements are done to relaxing music, are simple to copy and are repeated with the instructor, so you don't have to remember a lot of instructions and sequence. This has the advantage that you won't get left behind if you can't come every week. The movements can help improve balance, flexibility, memory and general well-being through releasing stress and tension.

Suitable for complete beginners - you won't know how nice it is until you try it!

45 minutes of gentle exercise. Cost £6, which can also be done seated.
