No matter what the weather this year, our enthusiastic Tigers are practicing every week come rain or shine….we just wear appropriate clothing!

For one hour, we all enjoy total peace, tranquility, energy, and love – with absolutely no interference from our ‘chattering minds’, daily life issues, or the little niggles we may have. We leave our sessions in the park feeling relaxed, energised and looking forward to the next time we meet.

Beginners welcome every Friday 11 – 12 in Manor Heath, Halifax.

Late Autumn 2020 – our Tai Chi & Qigong practice has been stimulating and challenging, testing our endurance and so much more! The cooler temperatures add another dimension to our practice. You can literally feel the benefits that nature can give to everyone, with time and patience they can be yours too.

Qigong An exhilarating session in what began as snow, turning to sleet, then rain. At the end we decided that perhaps thermal gloves would be good for Christmas!!

The following week, two groups of enthusiastic members enjoyed perfect weather for our Yang Form practice.

post lockdownSocially distanced, the sun shone on us whilst exercising our minds and bodies helping us to accept the current Covid situation with peace and tranquility.

 

Summer 2020 – our Tai Chi & Qigong practice has been amazing, testing our balance and so much more!

“Thank you for your endeavours to keep going this year..its been a lifesaver” SH

“Thank you so much for your commitment & dedication. Your sessions both on the Moor & most importantly on the internet have been so helpful for my well-being both physically & mentally and both Linda and I can’t thank you, David and Frances enough”. CM

Fabulous Tai Chi & Qigong morning practice in a quiet, tranquil setting at home…unbelievably exhilarating.
Discover your calm mind and strong body with our exclusive training programme of gentle exercise continuing on the Moor in Halifax for September starting Monday 7th.

Enjoy practicing outside (unless it is windy or very wet) – the difference between indoors and out is special, exciting, and quite enlightening as you can appreciate your body in greater detail, more easily absorb natural energies from around you and become totally engrossed in your practice to free your thoughts.

World Health Qigong Day

World Health Qigong Day

An exhilarating experience – practicing Qigong beneath a Chinese Parasol Tree whilst it protected us from the pouring rain!

We all met in Lilford Park, Leigh to enjoy Qigong exercise together to celebrate World Health Qigong Day. Feeling energised, relaxed and happy we then went about our day with enthusiasm for life and living.

Qigong is a remarkable way to restore health, give you vitality, experience mindfulness, encourage longevity and happiness – try it and feel for yourself the difference in your life.

 

Training for Tai Chi Staff with Professor Peng was amazing – totally engrossed in the movements of graceful tranquility whilst totally focussed on the sequence of co-ordinated moves between me and a stick!

Games

The European Health Qigong Games were held this year in the UK at the University of Hertfordshire. Twenty countries were represented with teams and individuals from as far away as Canada demonstrating their skills and ability in Health Qigong.

Mindful exercise as a moving meditation.

Our Tai Chi Tigers class in Dean Clough’s Crossley Gallery where peace and tranquility help our students to enjoy the gentle, mindful exercise of Qigong for wellbeing and health in body, mind and spirit, and  the challenges of Tai Chi Yang style Long Form to practice in Crossley Gallery’s amazing space.

Another brilliant workshop with Marsha and David. Different experience levels taking part but Marsha took the time to go around everyone and the beginners like myself had David to patiently take us through the first form. Everyone was so friendly and always such a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere. Cannot wait for next year’s schedule of events”. M.G.
