Due the Covid-19 global outbreak, Chris at Living Tai Chi has had to stop her regular Chen Taijiquan community classes with Barnet Age UK and the Kensington & Chelsea Forum, however through these difficult times we would like to make available online classes to give continuity to our teaching and support the community helping us relax and keep strong and healthy.
We are keeping touch through the live-streaming online classes at Tai Ji Circle so that we can still practice and learn together at home. Chris is teaching two classes on Tuesdays and Fridays at 11.00am, see the website for details. 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 us and get in touch if you are interested.
Living Tai Chi run by Christine Jones, based in North London, brings a fresh outlook to working with Tai Ji Quan (tai chi), Qi Gong (Chi kung) and combines 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 Tai Chi Qi Gong 18 movement set, for loosening up the body and freeing 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.
