Private Tuition – A Student Experience
“Having been a pupil of Earth Balance Tai Chi for some two years, I had often thought about one to one lessons. So earlier this year I decided to treat myself.
Truly, the best move I have made in a long time. Working through the movements with the encouragement and undivided attention of Nicola has made a vast difference to my Tai Chi practise. With my posture being corrected, and the moves being explained in great detail, knee alignment (a weak point before) put right not only affected my practise, but my everyday awareness of my physical and mental being. All with Nicola’s enthusiasm, support and sparkling good humour.
I have my lessons in a lovely outdoors setting in whatever weather the seasons bring us. So far this year we haven’t had to seek the shelter. Consider this:
What would your plumber or electrician charge you for work on your home? What does your car mechanic charge per hour for repairs and M.O.T?
Well, I think I’m worth the fee that I pay for a one to one lesson..

Instructor Nicola is passionate about sharing Chen style Tai Chi with her students. Following the forms of Grand Master Chen Zhenglei she provides live online private tuition using Skype and/or Facebook video call. The types of live online lessons offered are Chen Tai Chi for previous students/those with experience and Hibernating Bear Tai Chi. Learn authentic healthy movements in your own home and join Nicola’s community of students on a journey to improved health and wellbeing.
Nicola helps students progress through the traditional principles of Chen style silk reeling and the empty hand forms, teaching through a hands-on method rather than ‘watch and follow‘. Lessons start with traditional Chen warm up exercises that loosen every major joint in the body. Next a Qigong breathing session, focusing on relaxation, softening the body, lowering the heart rate and slowing the breath. Progressing to ‘Standing Practice’ (Zhan Zhuang), a static Qigong posture as a meditation and stillness exercise. Moving onto Silk Reeling Drills, the signature movement of Chen style and then the main content of her lessons covers the empty hand form.
