Tai Chi for Beginners & Improvers

Mon 15 Sep 4.30pm & 5.15pm @ Equilibrium Studio Every Mon till 17 November 2014 £80 for 10 weeks

Tai Chi Ch'uan is an ancient form of slow, graceful and rhythmic exercise which originated in China, where it is still extremely popular, often being performed in public parks early in the morning when the air is at its freshest. The style taught here is the Yang style Short Form as developed by Professor Ch'eng Man Ch'ing, currently the most popular form of Tai Chi in the U.K.

Tai Chi is sometimes referred to as 'meditation in movement' or 'swimming in air' for externally that is how it appears. It is a soft martial art, quite unlike karate, ju jitsu or any of the 'hard' martial arts which rely on force and speed.

Tai Chi strengthens our internal energy, and allows it to flow more freely through the body. It is gentle and non-violent, though after much practice it is an extremely effective form of self defence.

Mindfulness has been used for thousands of years for promoting a general sense of wellbeing. This course is relevant for anyone and will provide tools and an approach to life that can help us all appreciate life more & be more effective in daily life.

Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an 8-week course in how to use mindfulness in daily life. It has also been scientifically shown to reduce stress and anxiety. Mindfulness particularly helps reduce ‘over thinking’ which for all of us can so easily reduce our enjoyment of life. Many people have also reported finding mindfulness very helpful in both their personal relationships and work roles. MBSR was originally designed to help people manage the stress of chronic pain and extreme health conditions but has also been scientifically shown to reduce stress in healthy people too. It is used widely around the world now for the general public and in workplace settings. In controlled trials it has also been shown to reduce anxiety. In fact, one study has shown MBSR can reduce anxiety by 70%.

Tue 28 Oct 8xTues 6pm-8pm +1Sat @ Headway House until 16 December 2014 £285

Rooted in ancient traditions of meditation, mindfulness has become the subject of increasing scientific attention in recent years and has been shown to be helpful for a wide range of physical and mental health difficulties and for general wellbeing.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction will lead you through the key principles of living mindfully, and introduce practices to help you cultivate mindfulness in daily life.

In the course you will learn:

to stay in touch with the present moment and be less caught up in negative or stressful thinking patterns
to bring a non-judgemental and accepting attitude to yourself and your experiences
to develop more awareness and understanding of stress and helpful ways of responding to it
to use simple meditation techniques which can transform daily life, including sitting meditation, body scan and mindful movement
You will also be invited to develop your own practice through weekly homework (about 45 mins a day). We will provide course materials and CDs for you to do this. The course is open to anyone - however, applicants will be asked to fill in a brief questionnaire and have a phone orientation before their place is confirmed.
