What is Tai Chi? Tai Chi is an ancient discipline which in short is a combination of gentle exercise combined with meditation and relaxed intent.

Tai Chi is good for: Relaxation, promoting health, feeling a greater sense of peace, strengthening the body, improving balance, assisting a healing process, and helping to make a better, more enjoyable connection with one's own body.

What does Tai Chi require? However much conscious and relaxed effort you are willing to put into it. Though it requires some work I believe that Tai Chi ultimately gives back more than what you invest into it.

What level do you teach? Most beginning to advanced levels. Whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced practitioner I am generally able to offer the 'next step' to practitioners, often in classes with people of mixed skills and abilities.

A gentle workout? I believe that many discover the practice of Tai Chi to be a novel experience in their life. I think we are used to the extremes of modern life: passive relaxation, i.e. watching a movie on the sofa. Or we may have active tension: putting effort into work or a task and being physically and/or mentally tense. Tai Chi aims for 'active relaxation' -- being consciously engaged but physically relaxed. For many it's an exciting new way to approach any activity or their life in general.
