1 Hour Live Online Lesson

This lesson is for previous students of Chen style Tai Chi that follow the forms of Grand Master Chen Zhenglei. Suited to students who have trained with instructor Nicola. It is also open to students who have some experience in Chen style and understand the foundation movements/basic form.


This type of online lesson is suited to students who embrace a self-led learning style as it is not a watch and follow class. As a distance learning student you will be the type of learner that enjoys practicing outside of the lesson, videoing your progression and be happy working from resources to prepare for the lesson ahead. If you enjoy a challenge and welcome being active and engaged in your Chen Tai Chi training, this could be for you!
