About Course

This course aims to teach you basic skills that you need to develop your Tai Chi movements.

These exercises can also be practiced if you are thinking of starting a tai chi class or you just want to get your body moving for general health improvement.

This course is open to most levels of fitness as we work very slowly through the basic skills needed to develop a good tai chi practice, good alignment and movement.

This will also be excellent for students who want to relax their bodies in a positive way
