Where better to practice the relaxing art of Tai-Chi than in the tranquil and serene surroundings of Valentines?


In a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, you will learn the elegant movements of the 24 Steps Tai Chi Short Form while improving your balance, flexibility, coordination and strength. You will also explore Qi Gong movements. Easy to learn and enjoyable to do, Qi Gong is a powerful system of health, which can harmonise, strengthen and have a healing effect on the functioning of all the internal organs and bodily systems.

Tai Chi is a very effective way to develop balanced health for the body and the mind. Among others, it develops

o   Improved overall health

o   Calmness and focus of mind

o   Increased energy

o   Suppleness, strength, co-ordination, balance, and agility

o   Relaxation and freedom from stress

Students develop increasing physical and mental skills, as awareness and understanding of all aspects of their self increases. You can learn and practise Tai Chi at your individual pace, and, as there are ever-new levels, throughout the rest of your life. These disciplines rely on a mindful re-discovery of the body to enrich and inspire one’s experience of any aspect of life.

Qi Gong (often spelt Chi Kung) is a powerful type of health exercise, which has been practised for centuries by millions of Chinese people. It is based on repetitions of very precise sets of movements, specifically designed to benefit health on many different levels.

Qi Gong is easy to learn and enjoyable to do. Even a few minutes of practise can have an invigorating and rejuvenating effect. Regular practice brings about a deep strengthening effect for the whole body and its various systems (nervous, digestive, respiratory, skeleton-muscular, hormonal, gynaecological, etc). Its ability to help in healing a large variety of chronic and acute injuries and illnesses has been the subject of various research programmes led by the Chinese medical authorities.
