Personalised Tai Chi, Qigong & Meditation Practice

Private Student Review

"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..
Aren’t you?"
