EARTH BALANCE TAI CHI
SCHOOL OF TAI CHI, QIGONG, MEDITATION
Movement & stillness for health, happiness & longevity
Welcome to Earth Balance Tai Chi, a school of Chen Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Taoist Meditation with myself, instructor Nicola. Learn how to align the body, move slowly, calm the mind and breathe deeply. I train students online on Zoom and in community classes on the Isle of Wight. Whether you are looking for traditional Chen Tai Chi form training, or would like to improve your mobility for health and wellbeing. My specialism is working with people living with chronic illness, passing on methods to improve quality of life, lessen the pain experience, ease fatigue and build resilience. Join me in the studio on the Isle of Wight, virtually in online group classes via Zoom or learn through 1-2-1 online private tuition.

SELF MANAGE CHRONIC HEALTH
'Hibernating Bear' centres around my ethos to make traditional Tai Chi, Qigong and meditation practice available to students of all abilities. Dynamic slow movements, whole body awareness, intention and breath work, designed for those who wish to be active in their health care management. For those living with chronic health, degenerative health and different base lines than the norm.
Over the last 18 years I have distilled my studies and practice of the movements and stillness arts, combined with my personal experience of living with chronic health, to pass on effective natural methods to improve health and wellbeing. Be proactive in your self care using Tai Chi, Qigong, mindfulness and meditation techniques to strengthen and soften.
