Life Now Tai Chi is a gentle introductory six-week course running for an hour each week. Each class is delivered by a senior tai chi instructor.

Tai Chi is a moving meditation which involves gentle movements, deep breathing techniques and meditation. There is no need for any prior skills or experience to participate and benefit from the course. You will be guided through each class and your teacher will adapt movements to suit your needs.

Thank you so much for your Tai Chi course. I had always wanted to be instructed in this and found it wonderful. I felt like I was flying when I had finished.
