SPRING WORKSHOPS

“Qigong for Beginners” – tba 

‘Qigong’ (translated as ‘energy work’) – amazing gentle exercises to release and increase the flow of energy in body and mind whilst helping to manage stress. Suitable for all skill levels, fitness & age.

“Yang Style Long Form”

Would you enjoy getting more benefit out of your Form practice? – come along to this workshop and make a difference to your moves. Numbers will be limited to ensure personal guidance. Please let Marsha or David know of your interest. Both workshops will be in Dean Clough on a Saturday morning.

“After a Summer spent nursing and caring for elderly parents, I returned home to Halifax feeling spent! I’d been home for a couple of weeks – lacking in energy and motivation – when I decided to go along to Marsha’s Tai Chi workshop (wondering if I’d be able to last the morning!) I needn’t have worried. But, the biggest bonus for me was the big burst of energy I felt the next day. I woke up not knowing what to tackle first! and feeling I could do three jobs at once! It was like something had been switched on inside me. The release of energy was such a relief – it got me back into life again. Of course, I’m still doing Tai Chi and reaping the rewards.”  Sue

“Many thanks Marsha and David for another inspirational workshop. I really appreciated the individual expert tuition to enhance my tai chi practice, learning to focus on posture, breathing and relaxation in mind and body. I know Tai Chi has positively changed my life, in mind body and spirit.” Mollie

Wheelchair Users

We were so pleased when Kath decided to try Tai Chi in one of our Tai Chi Tigers classes… these are her words encouraging other wheelchair users to do Tai Chi & Qigong

“I wasn’t very sure when I initially decided to try Tai Chi just how I would manage being a wheelchair user but I decided to give it a go anyway. I am absolutely delighted I did – I love the class, the teacher, and such a friendly group of people who make me feel so welcome. I really do feel I have a large new family of friends who are lovely, and find myself looking forward each Tuesday to the class at St Columba’s Church Hall.”

Tai Chi is definitely suitable for a wheelchair user and I find the gentle exercises give me a sense of satisfaction and feeling of wellbeing. It has made me more aware of my breathing and is so relaxing whilst also proving beneficial to me personally.

I have MS and my right leg is the weakest but I have found in the eight weeks that I have been attending Tai Chi Tigers classes, my movement has slightly improved when doing Tai Chi exercise.

So, all in all, I can thoroughly recommend Tai Chi Tigers class for all other wheelchair users.”       Kath King 15th May 2017

For even more inspiration, take 2 minutes to watch this. Please be encouraged to get in touch with Marsha or David if you would like to try one of our Tai Chi classes, if we can, we would love to help you.
