What to Expect

 

Qigong: Simple, gentle, slow, flowin movements, co-ordinating with the breath. We practise Five Animals Qigong, Five Daoist Exercises, Dragon Plays with a Pearl, Da Wu or Great Dance and a stretching exercise called "Shen Jin Ba Gu".

 

Somatics: Subtle, controlled, slow movements that connect your centre to your periphery and help y ou to release muscular tension. Most of the movements are done lying on the floor so you need a mat.

 

Tai chi: Slow, flowing sequences that are martial in origin. We practise Chen styled Tai chi, the oldest style of Tai chi, and are studying the Laojia form. We do silk reeling exercises as a warm up and work on one or two patterns per session.

More Details About the Classes.

All classes are open to beginners but some of the classes are more vigorous than others. 

There are classes in Tai chi, Qigong and Somatics. In general the Qigong classes are more gentle than the Tai chi classes as they can be adapted for sitting. And the day time classes are more gentle than the evening ones. Somatics is very gentle but you need to be able to lie on the floor.
