Qi Gong and Tai Chi (Beginners)

Tuesdays | 10:00am - 11:00am | Merseyside Dance Initiative | £6

All classes are currently postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check the website or follow us on social media for updates.

A class for beginners, and those looking to get back into Tai Chi, suitable for 18+.

Beginners will learn a sequence of warming up exercises and the 18 forms Qi Gong, which will prepare you for learning the Tai Chi form.

This is a gentle session, allowing people time to absorb the essence of Qi Gong and Tai Chi.

People with health problems are welcome to come along to the classes, and I am always happy to support individuals who may feel limited by health issues. I find the practise of Qi Gong is a restorative process and have personal experience with this.

Please wear loose comfortable clothes, pumps or light trainers.

£60 for 12 sessions payable in advance, or in two payments of £30.
