Welcome to the site
Group classes at reCentre-Health, Balham on Wednesdays from 18.00 to 19.00 (come as early as 17.30 for warm-up and chat)
The class focuses on tai chi (and chi kung) for health and wellbeing. Our by-words are balance, flexibility, relaxation, body-awareness and fun. Other terms that might apply are mindfulness, meditation – well, I don’t want to give it all away here.
Just to point out that this is not a martial arts class (although we do look at the origin of tai chi as martial arts training). In two-person work, we learn about our own, and a partner’s response to the gentle application of force – in particular, the value of yielding.
As the class is open to people of all ages and levels of interest and experience, classes are adapted to the group attending on the day. That said, I do endeavour to provide a progressive ‘take home’ for those who want to (and I hope you do) practice at home and develop your skill in and understanding of what tai chi has to offer.
See below, in the footer, for a map and location details for ReCentre-Health.
If you are interested in these classes, but want to have a chat about their suitability for you, or other tai chi related matters, do get in touch, using the contact form, and I’ll phone you back.
