What should I wear?

Please wear something you are comfortable in, and which enables you to move freely (eg. tracksuit bottoms and a loose t-shirt).  To ensure you stay warm enough, you may wish to wear layers, which you can remove as you warm up. 

You can wear trainers or comfortable flat shoes, or the sessions can be performed in bare feet/socks.

 

What do I need to bring with me?

You only really need to bring yourself!

You may wish to bring some water with you (as is always recommended).

Mats may be available, however you may wish to bring your own mat should you wish to do the session barefoot or in socks to provide additional comfort.

CHI-GONG SESSIONS / GONG MEDITATION SESSIONS:

In addition to the above, please bring any mats, blankets and/or a duvet to ensure you stay warm and comfortable during the Gong Meditation should you be laying on the floor.

Although we have some you can borrow, you may wish to bring your own eye mask with you, should you prefer to switch off for the session in this way.

 

Important information for the Chi-Gong sessions & Gong Meditation sessions - please arrive 10 minutes before the start time to allow yourself time to get settled prior to the start time.  Any late arrivals may not be permitted to enter to avoid disturbing the experience for other attendees.

I've never done Tai Chi Qigong before - do I need experience?

Not at all!  The tradition of Tai Chi we practice is Medical Qigong, from which the Shibashi set is derived.

Movements are gentle and easy to learn and follow and you move at your pace and rhythm.  The purpose of each session is to improve your health and wellbeing, and to give you a greater sense of relaxation.

Each session is complete in itself, so if you're unable to come along one week, you won't be falling behind the rest of the group.

We can focus on different elements each week, eg. breathing, movements, posture, energy etc and you will progress within each area - but always at your own pace.  

It's your wellbeing journey - relax and enjoy it!
