Our ethos

We provide a calm and friendly learning space.
T’ai Chi is a non-competitive martial art and our classes are nurturing and non-competitive. We teach the Yang family long form, incorporating the T’ai Chi principles and concepts. Qi gong is also taught as part of the class.

Benefits of T’ai Chi

T’ai Chi balances both mind and body and its health benefits have been widely publicised by the media. It reduces stress and high blood pressure, helps balance and coordination, fall prevention, back problems, cardiovascular problems, diabetes type 2, osteoporosis, arthritis, memory, Parkinsons disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and fibromyalgia. Sports people also find that T’ai Chi helps improve their performance.

Lessons

Although it is slow-moving, time, correct and regular practice is needed to reap the health benefits and graceful movement synonymous with T’ai Chi.
Pat has been practising T’ai Chi for many years and has been teaching T’ai Chi since 2004. Classes are held in Amersham and Chesham, please contact us for more details.

“It has greatly improved my balance and posture. My general well-being has also improved. The class is a friendly hour to look forward to each week. The tuition is very friendly but thorough. Having previously attended a different class I now feel that I am (slowly!) mastering the real T’ai Chi.”

“The benefits I get from T’ai Chi are ongoing. My balance and mobility are better and being older it makes my brain work … it isn’t until you find someone who knows about these things, you realise you haven’t been doing the  ‘REAL’ T’ai Chi. There is so much to learn and Pat is patient enough with you to explain what is what and how one can use T’ai Chi in everyday life.”

PS

“T’ai Chi gives focus, awareness to detail, which reflects in everyday living. A very positive expression when life is frantic, allowing a realisation to step away from the need to follow. The teaching is delivered with great attention to all aspects of T’ai Chi. The phrase “as patient as a saint” comes to mind, for which extended gratitude is given to Pat, thank you.”
