One to One – Online Tai Chi & Qigong Tuition
For students of all abilities, we offer chair based Tai Chi and Qigong private tuition classes via Skype. Read about this latest development and the thoughts of owner/instructor Nicola Jones. In this type of online exercise class, we use Skype as a video and voice call. Learn simple, repetitive, powerful and healthy movements in the comfort of your own home. Make a positive difference in your life by learning the ancient practices of Tai Chi and Qigong.
All of the movements have been modified from the standing, walking syllabus that we teach, to be taught using a dining room chair, stability ball or wheelchair. You can work at a pace that suits you, with a lesson designed for your mobility needs. This, we hope is a welcome relief for those finding it a struggle to get to a local class and yet still want to try out Tai Chi and Qigong and begin exercising regularly.
This type of class suits someone who cannot stand for the lesson, has limited mobility, may be recovering from injury or ill-health, is currently in rehabilitation, who lives with chronic pain or may not have exercised in a while and so on. Anyone can book a seated skype class with us, we love sharing Tai Chi and Qigong with everyone.
