If You are looking for a Chen Style Tai Chi class in Bury, Oldham and north Manchester, then check out the classes on offer below. We have classes to suit all levels and abilities. We hope to have the class suitable for you!
Our beginners Tai Chi classes adopt a patient, informal teaching method. All you have to do is turn up and have a go.
Your balance and co-ordination will begin to improve as you learn, as will your leg strength and general health.
Tai Chi Beginners start to learn a set of warm-up exercises, then a "Silk Reeling" exercise and the beginning of the form. Week by week we revise the movements and gradually add some more to build up our knowledge and understanding. Leaning how to breathe correctly, move in a relaxed manner and to co-ordinate the hands and feet, is not so easy as you may think! Do be patient with yourself. It will take weeks before you can just do the warm-up routine. As we learn the movements we also learn the martial application behind them, building up our knowledge of the meaning and the method in which to develop it.
You will need at least 10 - 15 lessons before you are able to practise by yourself. The true benefits come from doing these exercises on a daily basis, so coming to class once a week is not nearly enough!
Try not to miss a class especially in the first few months as you will not feel any progression if you are not able to remember the Tai Chi sequence!
