Meditation, relaxation and less stress class

5 places left - phone Katy on 01438 871871 to start enjoying this class.

To help make sure that next year is your best yet we have increased our courses at Insight Tai Chi. We are of course still offering the Adult and Over 60’s Tai Chi classes for beginners, and continuing with intermediate classes for our existing students and those with previous experience.

Private one on one lessons are also available from as little as £35 per hour.

We have added some relaxation and meditation courses designed to get straight into the causes of stress and tension, providing some quick fixes from the very first class while also working deep in the tissues, nervous system and awareness to ensure not just your physical health but also your emotional and mental well being. No one denies there will be tough choices for us all next year, and some will have no choice but to let go of some of our material way of living – yet this does not have to be “bad”. The coming year will be full of challenge and opportunity to learn, grow and find the New. Inner learning can never be taken away, and is always a resource to fall back on. STRENGTH, CONFIDENCE and JOY come from inside not a job “position”, title or material wealth.

The adult relax, meditate and less stress course is designed to stand along side the Tai Chi or on its own.

This lovely class will involve warm up exercises, then lying down meditation to deeply relax you, increase your energy and give you a more positive attitude to life. Simple exercises to ease those aches and pains, remove stress from the body and improve your wellbeing follow with hints and tips for staying calm in difficult situations while staying alert. Chi Kung exercises improves joint alignment.

This class is designed to be an enjoyable treat which will do you the world of good.

• Breathing and meditation to calm the mind and reduce unproductive circling thought.
• Relaxation to deeply release your nerves calming your mind.
• Meditation to allow you to feel your bones and let go of your muscles so your movement (including Tai Chi if you do it) naturally falls into your balance points and is light and effortless.
• Meditation to fortify your blood and immune system having the most excellent side effects of giving you more energy, more enthusiasm and a more positive attitude to life.
• Simple exercises to release physical tension.
• Ways to prevent the tension returning.
• How to stay calm and grounded in difficult situations so you can think and feel clearly.
• How to stay alert and focussed.
• Simple massages to help the muscles and nerves let go of unproductive tension, relieving those aches and pains (all massage is fully clothed, optional, and can do done with a friend you come to class with or other members of the class. Alternatives you can do on your own will always be offered).
• Exercises you can do while watching TV and at work.
