Tai Chi is a form of exercise and martial art that promotes good health and fitness.

 

Tai Chi is known by several different names, such as Taiji, Tai Chi Chuan, or Shadowboxing. It is an exercise and martial art that orginated in Ancient China, many centuries ago. It has grown to become one of the most popular exercises in the world.

 

It is recommended by many health professionals and experts, because it provides many health benefits - combining breathing techniques, whole-body movements, and meditation.

Tai Chi is a Chinese Martial Art originally practiced to train for self defence, but has since become a popular work out and meditation exercise that has many health benefits. 

Tai Chi has become a popular exercise for many people around the world. It serves many different purposes, depending on what you are looking for.

 For some, it involves slow, fluid movements. For others, it involves fast movements we typically associate with Kung Fu in popular culture. For some, such as myself, Tai Chi can also involve using a sword as well as other weapons.

Qigong is an exercise for the body, mind and spirit that focuses on the flow of energy through your bod - it is a form of moving meditation

 

Qigong, much like Tai Chi, involves coordinated, purposeful and flowing movements. Qigong focuses on movement, breathing and meditation, with roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine and martial arts.

 

As such, some practitioners find it helps them manage the symptoms caused by illness, injury and stress.

About Me

I'm Nick, and I will be your Tai Chi & Qigong teacher.

I first started learning Tai Chi over two decades ago. For me, Tai Chi started as a hobby, but it soon began to mean much more, and I started on a Tai Chi journey that has spanned over twenty years - I am now a 5th Duan Wei Tai Chi Sifu. 

I was taught by Master Liming Yue, who in turn is a disciple of Grandmaster Chen Zhenglei, who is recognised as one of the best practitioners of  Tai Chi in the world.

At first I only taught locally within my community, encouraged by my Master, my friends and my family - but as I grew in ability and confidence, I started to take part in competitions, be more ambitious with my learning, and have created a global Tai Chi community via my online classes.

Those who practise Tai Chi and Qigong with me do so for a whole range of reasons - some are on a Tai Chi journey much like mine, but many do Tai Chi with me for fun, for fitness and health reasons, or simply to be a part of a kind and caring community. I strongly believe that Tai Chi is an exercise anyone can do... and the benefits of practising Tai Chi and Qigong regularly are incredible.
