About the Exercises

This class is based on 'Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi', which means 18 movements. 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 usually 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. The movements can help improve balance, flexibility, memory and general well-being through releasing stress and tension.

Using Zoom Meetings

Zoom is free to use - when you receive a meeting invitation by email, you can easily sign in for the session by clicking on the 'Join' link, up to 15 minutes before the lesson start time. You can join a meeting by using any browser, but we recommend you install the app when prompted, as it is more reliable. If you are joining directly from the app or browser, enter in the meeting number and password you were sent, and the email it was sent to. Once connected, you can join in with the class, see all your classmates, ask questions, chat with others as well as us, and many other great features which we can start to use as we get more used to using the new medium.

Tips for video meetings

  • If at all possible always use the meetings app on your computer or device - it’s much more reliable than a browser. 
  • Check your background - try to avoid having strong light behind you. 
  • If you want to be seen clearly (e.g. so we can correct you) use contrasting clothing to your background.
