Tai Chi classes are held every Monday evening in Lewes, East Sussex at the All Saints Centre in Friars Walk.

* Beginners classes are 6.00-7.00pm every Monday
* Intermediate classes are 7.00-8.00pm every Monday
* Advanced classes (for students who have completed the Short Form) are also available.
* Outdoor classes 6.30-7.30pm every Monday in July (current/previous students only).

* We also run Carers classes at 11.30am every Friday in Newhaven, at the Hillcrest Centre in Hillcrest Rd

Our classes are co-operative rather than competitive - there are no grades or belts to achieve in Tai Chi, and the emphasis is on small amounts of regular practice.

A new 'posture' is learned every week - in Tai Chi this is a series of fluid, flowing movements rather than a static pose. We repeat the posture the following week, and when everyone feels comfortable with it, we add another.

By the end of the first term you will have learned the first section of the Short Form. For some students this will be adequate, and will certainly be a useful introduction to the art of Tai Chi. Others may wish to learn more - normally the Short Form is taught in four terms.

There are extra opportunities for revision classes, outdoor classes in the park, private tuition and learning aids for students of all levels.

What if I have special needs?

All our classes are fully wheelchair accessible, and we teach people with seriously impaired vision (including students registered blind), with seriously impaired hearing (including students registered deaf, although regrettably we are unable to teach in sign language) and with mild learning difficulties. Please inform us beforehand if you have particular needs, and we will be glad to accommodate you.

For people with Acquired Brain Injury, there is a special class at Headway Hurstwood Park, Newick, every Wednesday from 10.30am-12.30pm. For information about joining this class please call 01825 724323. For all other classes, please see our website: www.taichiforhealth.org
