What will you learn on this course?
Yang Tai Chi is a smooth, gentle exercise coordinating calm breathing movements and inner concentration. This is a low–impact mind–body series of movements from traditional Chinese arts to aid the balance of health and to support longevity.

You will learn relaxation techniques to keep fit and improve your well–being including Qigong exercises that combine breathing with movements. You will also continue to learn the Yang 24 step Tai Chi form. This is a sequence of movements originating from the Yang family style.

The tutor demonstrates and explains the movements to the class and you will learn how to practice these using safe and effective posture and technique and in a relaxed manner.
