Learning mindfulness through gentle movement

Through gently moving the body we combine mindfulness teachings with specially formulated movements making mindfulness practice truly accessible for more people 

Tai Chi

These classes are perfect for anyone wishing to practice mindfulness with alternatives to sitting meditations. Comprising breathwork with ACT mindfulness & gentle movements  based on Shibashi, a meditative form of Qigong and specifically designed by a specialist in ACT & a martial arts Grand Master for this class, we release tension in the body and clear the mind. This evidence-based form of exercise improves physical and emotional well-being and is suitable for anyone as the movements can be performed standing or sitting and are designed to accommodate all levels of physical ability.
