Is Tai Chi For You?

  • Do you have limited mobility?
  • Are you full of tension?
  • Do you lack energy and vitality?
  • Are you looking for an exercise that doesn’t overly strain your body?
  • Would you like to be more balanced, stronger and more mobile?

Of course you would and I will show you how. 

I’m Paul Chapman and I’ve been studying tai chi for nearly forty years. I’ve personally taught well over a thousand students to be happier, healthier, more relaxed, stronger and so on through this wondrous art.

Tai chi is something you can never get bored or tired of. I still love practicing it and even more I love teaching it and helping others discover the magic of tai chi.

Tai chi teaches you how to use your body, mind and breath more efficiently.

Did you know:

  • Changing your breathing can significantly reduce pain, increase your energy and help deal with a wide range of physical and mental health issues.
  • Learning to move in a more balanced way puts less strain on your body and heart and helps you stay fit and active well into your old age.
  • Learning to express yourself through movement is a powerful way of increasing your confidence and happiness. It’s why dance is so popular. But unlike dance tai chi teaches you to relax fully while moving.

Our classes focus on your posture, breathing, mental focus and so as well as learning the form.

We incorporate ancient qigong exercises and teach a wide range of skills that help you to relax and gain more control over your mind, body and breathing.

Why you should join

It’s so important to take charge of your own health and wellbeing as our NHS is so underfunded and desperately short of staff and resources.

Tai chi has been shown to be effective in dealing with a wide range of chronic health issues. It’s even better at helping prevent them from occurring in the future.

Our classes are fun, friendly and fascinating. Everything is explained in detail so you know exactly what to do and how to do it.

What Our Students Think

“I love these classes. A time of the week when I can fully relax, learn to improve myself and let go of my tensions.”
Moira T

“Paul is a great teacher. He explains everything so well that it’s easy to understand but not necessarily easy to do. This takes practice but is so worth it. I feel so much younger and fitter now.”
Trevor R

“I have tried tai chi before but I didn’t get on with it. This is a much better class. I’m learning much more and am determined to keep at it as I can see the clear benefits it has.”
Annie G

“I spend a lot of time gardening and consequently suffer the next day but now, when I finish gardening I do some tai chi and find I don’t ache the next day, which is a real game changer for me.”
Jocelyn P
