Lesson Content: These classes are casual study. Loosening exercises and warm ups, Qigong exercises, Qigong breathing methods, standing practice, Chen Tai Chi silk reeling, Chen Tai Chi movements and small sections from the Chen 5, Chen 18 and Chen Laojia Yi Lu forms. To note I will not be teaching the Tai Chi forms from the beginning to end, this will remain within online private tuition.

Caveat: Please note that learning online is not a replacement for in person classes. Tai Chi and Qigong should ideally be taught in a hands on manner, where movement, posture and alignment corrections are given and shown physically.

Suited To:  No experience needed. All of the movements will be performed standing up with stepping and walking exercises. You must be able to stand and move around for 1 hour and 15 minutes. The movements can be demanding on the body. This livestream class is not suitable for students with chronic health, who will continue to be taught under private tuition and in the Hibernating Bear livestream.

Space: You need enough room to step two to three times in any direction whilst moving your arms to the side and over-head.

Medical History: As with all medical conditions, injuries and/or ill-health, please consult with your Doctor prior to starting a class. Tai Chi, Qigong and Meditation are not a replacement for conventional medical treatment.  Please advise instructor Nicola prior to class of any medical conditions, injuries and/or ill-health that may prevent you from safely taking part.
