Our Beginners’ courses are suitable for all, regardless of age, level, shape and size – they will improve your health and well-being and make you feel good!

We run regular Beginners’ Tai Chi courses in the heart of London every 10 or 15 weeks. However, if you have missed the start date, it is not too late to join! Just give Barry a call and he will be able to help you.
