Chronic Pain Course IOW

ReMap Course Summary

Movement and Stillness for Life Long Health and Wellbeing

March to June 2019

Wednesday 12 June 2019 saw the completion of the 12 week ReMap course in Newport on the Isle of Wight, a movement and stillness class for those living with chronic pain. Over the duration I introduced the students to ‘Hibernating Bear Tai Chi‘, covering a variety of Qigong, Chen Tai Chi and stillness practices specifically designed for those living with differing health base-lines than the norm.

In the mix was;

Each and every student approached the lessons with an empty mind and a warm heart. Over the weeks the the students trained well and relaxed hard. They absorbed a lot of information about self-responsibility in wellbeing through the gentle yet powerful exercises of Tai Chi and Qigong, and the mindful practices of seated meditation. Thank you so much to each student for their enthusiasm, laughter and presence.

The course was evaluated throughout by the NHS Chronic Pain Clinic at St Mary’s Hospital, who are currently collating student feedback. I cannot wait to see the final report and hopefully see in print the positive impact that the classes have had on their lives.

Thank you also to the Independent Arts Charity for the organisation and funding of the course, as well as for providing such a great venue.
