Monday evening beginners class: 7.30 - 8.30pm Horfield Baptist Church, 279 Gloucester Road. N.B. Access from Brynland Avenue. New Term begins Monday 30th October.
I teach Tai Chi and Qigong exercises from the Taijiwuxigong system, as developed and taught by Grandmaster Dr Shen Hongxun based on his extensive knowledge of Tai Chi practices from across China. In essence this is about finding balance in body and mind. Health and happiness are what we are about.
Tai Chi is a mindful form of exercise that stretches and opens the body, improves posture, and gives the body’s energy system a boost. It can help to combat sedentary lifestyles, strengthen your core, and promote overall physical and mental well-being.
Specific mental health benefits include relief from feelings of stress, anxiety and depression, as well as tension headaches and insomnia. There is even evidence showing that people experience improved cognitive function, greater ability to multi-task and better brain health when they practice Tai Chi. There are many physical benefits to be gained, including combatting fatigue, relief from back and neck pain, and help with joint conditions as well as chronic respiratory and gastric conditions. There is an increasing body of research evidence looking at the benefits of Tai Chi and Qi Gong, and studies now show that some of the benefits more traditionally associated with higher impact exercise, such as aerobic conditioning and heart health, can also be gained from practicing Tai Chi.
This is a beginners class so all are welcome.
