Qigong (Tai Chi) in Bicester
Qigong, also known as Chigong, is very similar to Tai Chi.
Slow, gentle, standing movements ease tension from body and mind. Co-ordinated with the breath, the movements are formed into sequences, so that you can become totally immersed in what you are doing - giving you 'mental space' from the busyness of life.
In addition to the standing movements, my classes include some breath work - done seated in a chair, and also some short meditations.
You'll leave the class feeling refreshed and calm ready to enjoy the rest of your day.
You wear normal, loose clothing that you can move around in comfortably. Soft soled shoes are a good idea so that you can feel the floor beneath your feet (or you may choose to be barefoot). No mat or any other equipment is needed.
Benefits of Qigong include:
- Reduces stress
- Relaxes body
- Calms mind
- Increases flexibility and strength
- Improves balance
- Supports overall wellbeing
Because the movements are slow and gentle, and performed standing, they are ideal for anyone who has troublesome knees or who finds it difficult to get up and down from the floor - though all, not just those who are less mobile, will benefit and are very welcome at classes.

All face to face classes must be pre-booked. This is because due to social distancing, places are extremely limited and for track and trace I need to have a 100% accurate record of attendance and also avoids the need to handle cash. If you have not booked, you will not be admitted.
If you plan to attend a mix of F2F and live stream classes, work out which pricing option suits you best. You only need to book for F2F classes. Feel free to give me a ring if you need any help 07917 453224.
