Tai Chi Inspired Exercises
Tai Chi and Chi Kung are gentle forms of exercise which combine relaxed, flowing, circular movements with a calm but alert mental state. These originated in China and have their roots in healing, meditation and martial traditions. Tai chi involves learning a sequence of movements known as a 'form' which when performed looks like an effortless slow-motion dance.
The movements I use in my classes are based on a type of Chi Kung developed in China in the 1980's by Dr Chan called Shibashi. They are simple and easy to learn and follow. They can be done in standing and sitting. The classes are very calm and relaxing.
It is important to be aware that I am not a qualified tai chi instructor but that I have done training as a physiotherapist in tai chi and I am using my physiotherapy skills to develop a unique class.

What to Wear and Bring
It is advisable to wear something comfortable and loose or stretchy. You are best to have flat, comfy shoes that won't fall off or socks with sticky bits on the bottom for grip. You may like to bring a bottle of water.
