Living Tai Chi run by Christine Jones is live online and in venue classes. Based in North London, i bring a fresh outlook to working with Tai Ji Quan (tai chi), Qi Gong (Chi kung) and combine ideas from different Asian health arts. The teaching is aimed at those in the community who are new to tai chi who want a gradual introduction and can be adapted for those unable to stand for a whole class, or for those who are older or physically less able who may need to sit for part of the practice.
Chris has developed a practice that is based on the foundation training of Chen Taijiquan (tai chi chuan in the more familiar Cantonese spelling) and qi gong (breathing health exercises), and also makes use of the Yie Fei Gong lung strengthening set, and sometimes the Tai Chi Qi Gong 18 movement set. All these exercises help loosening up the body and freeing tension allowing energy to flow more easily. These exercises can be done seated or standing depending on the group, and help release tension and stiffness using natural circular and spiralling movements. When practiced on a regular basis they can improve strength, balance, health, energy and wellbeing.
In 2022 we are keeping touch through the live online classes and London classes back in venue at Tai Ji Circle so that we can still practice and learn together at home or in venues. Chris is teaching two Community classes per week in Camden, on Tuesdays at St Paul’s Church Hall, Camden Square NW19XG, and at the St Pancras Community Association on Thursday morning and currently on online only on Fridays from 11.00–12:00. The online classes are hosted through Zoom. As an attendee to a session on Zoom you can join in and have a free account to facilitate entry to a meeting. Only the host, not the participant, needs a paid account for sessions longer than 40 minutes.
Please do email Chris and get in touch if you are interested.
