Tai Chi For You
PLEASE NOTE THERE ARE NO CLASSES BETWEEN 15TH AND 26TH MAY.
Tai Chi For You are classes for anyone, all ages and levels of fitness, both day and evening classes in Ashford, Sellindge & St Mary's Bay, Kent. This easy to learn gentle form of Tai Chi has been adapted by Dr Paul Lam working with Tai Chi and Medical experts. The exercises are aimed at improving health whilst being low impact upon your body.
It uses smooth gentle flowing movements designed to improve agility. In Tai Chi there are 5 main styles, these classes follow Dr Paul Lam's Tai Chi For Health program* which has adapted one of the five main styles, Sun Style. It has removed low stances, high impact moves and uses gentle postures and high stances that make it suitable for all.
Our classes provide an opportunity to learn this gentle form of exercise whilst standing or being seated. For those who feel they would prefer to sit or are unable to stand, I can help you to learn a set of smooth movements designed for this. The forms we practice are approved by Arthritis Care UK and Diabetes Uk and are tested to help improve strength, coordination and help reduce arthritis pain
You do not need to take my word for it there are plenty of studies and research to suggest Tai Chi can help fall prevention by improving stability, mobility, balance and co-ordination, it can also help fatigue, can help you learn to relax under pressure, cope with strains of everyday life and any other health problems where gentle movement, strengthening of muscles and an uplifting feeling are benefited. I have included details of some recent research on the website. Whether you are looking for prevention or cure of health conditions the Tai Chi journey is one where you learn external movements that increase blood circulation and internal breathing and focus that helps your life energy flow freely.
I hope as well as feeling the health benefits of Tai Chi, you will find enjoyment in the exercise too.
