Tai Chi is a slow, gentle form of exercise suitable for people of all ages and most levels of fitness. It resembles a slow classical dance and can be thought of as a type of meditation in movement. It is ideal for relaxation and stress reduction and can help build up balance and co-ordination, as well as bringing about a feeling of relaxation and peace of mind, while subtly exercising the body. It is made up of a sequence of moves, called a form and the type of Tai Chi Hazel teaches is a long, traditional form, called the Wutan form.

Tai Chi is also an ancient Chinese art which evolved hundreds of years ago and is rooted in the eastern philosophy of Taoism. The ancient Chinese lived very much in harmony with nature and many of the moves in the form imitate the natural movement of birds, animals or other aspects of nature, for example the posture 'seven stars' is named after the 'big dipper' star constellation, while 'white crane flaps its wings' imitates the move of a crane, a symbol of longevity in Chinese mythology. Tai Chi can also be practiced as a martial art, however it has been found to be beneficial to health and Hazel teaches it purely for health and relaxation reasons.

Hazel also teaches Qigong (pronounced 'Chee Gong') relaxation exercises. Qigong is similar to Tai Chi - it is also very slow and relaxed, however it is much easier to learn. After a 9 or 10 week course it would be normal to remember some Qigong exercises and to be able to practice them effectively in your own time.
 
 

Hazel has many years experience teaching Tai Chi and Qigong to people of all ages and levels of fitness in a wide variety of different environments, including Community Health Projects, The Workplace, Health and Fitness Centres, Universities, Hospitals and to Minority groups.
