"I have attended Jon’s on-line classes from the beginning of coronavirus lockdown.

Without doubt Jon’s teaching has eased the stress of lock-down and enabled me to feel balanced, energised and calm.

His explanations of movements through teaching shows deep understanding of his art.

His calm approach and knowledge is without doubt and you never stop learning with him”

Arts for your body and mind

Why Practice?

All of the forms, exercises and qualities we teach have been known to help improve a wide range of physical health issues including aches, pains and tension.

Tai Chi and Qigong also have a clear and positive effect on problems that have a more emotional or mind orientated nature such as anxiety or low mood.

 

However, the main focus in how we teach is on improving the overall quality of life through harmony of body and mind.

To work towards these goals we teach

Loosening - Releasing tensions in the body

Standing Meditation

Qigong (energy work)

Neigong (inner work)
