We have beginners as well as intermediates in each class, and one of our experienced instructors is always on hand to help, and to guide you through each step of the way.

Our Walsall Tai Chi classes combine deep breathing and relaxation with slow and gentle movements. Originally developed as a martial art in 13th-Century China, Tai Chi is now practised around the world as a health-promoting exercise. It is characterised by slow, graceful, continuous movements that are gentle on the joints and muscles. Done correctly, the postures flow smoothly from one to another.

Tai Chi has been shown to improve aerobic capacity, increase energy and help with balance. It is also used to reduce stress and increase general mobility. Some exercises aim to increase muscle strength in the legs and the back. Our class members also tell us that co-ordination and flexibility improve with coming to our Walsall Tai Chi classes. We also have a good time and have a real class spirit. We’d love to have you along with us.

Here are what some class-members say about this class:

“By regularly attending Tai Chi Classes with Steve, I found it to have had a very positive and uplifting effect on my mood and well-being. Our group is so friendly, full of laughter and very welcoming to everyone who joins.”  Yasmin

“By doing Tai Chi I have achieved strength through softness. Though the movement is slow, the energy it gives is fast.” Michael
