What is involved?

Please wear loose fitting clothing to allow movement and comfortable footwear.

Relaxation of the main muscle groups and joints helps open the body to the healing and repairing energies which the Chinese call ‘chi’. Deep, diaphragmatic breathing helps to calm the mind and relieve depression and anxiety.

We are delighted to introduce our new Instructor, Ilona, who explained;

The classes will include some stretching and mobilisation exercises to warm up. Tai Chi Qigong exercises from various lineages will be taught to improve physical, mental, and spiritual well- being. We will begin learning a form called Phoenix in Graceful Clouds of Blessing by Master Joe Lok. All the exercises can be performed seated or standing and are suitable for any age or level of fitness.

Ilona has been teaching tai chi to groups for over 25 years and is based in Wideopen, Newcastle upon Tyne.
