Tai Chi for Health Class - Skipton

We're very pleased to announce that we will open our 10th awarding winning Tai Chi for Health class at the lovely Fire House Studios, Skipton. As you can see it's a rather beautiful space. Situated beside the canal basin on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, in the centre of Skipton with the bus and train stations a short walk away.

Our first class starts on Wednesday 13th February 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm, with a free taster session for all new participants. The classes will run as follows:

    • Every Wednesday 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm

    • Open and ongoing - no need to book, just pay as you go

    • First Class Free to any new starter

    • Price per session: £6

    • Wear comfortable clothing, flat soled footwear, and bring a smile

Many people may recognise the slow, mindful movements of Tai Chi from the British comedy film, Calendar Girls, starring Helen Mirren and Julie Walters. If you watched the BBC TV programme Trust Me, I'm a Doctor recently you will have seen how regular practice of Tai Chi can offer a personal workout the equal of a more outwardly vigorous aerobic exercise such as Zumba, but without the sweat or need to wear sports clothing.

The Tai Chi for Health Institute, founded by Dr Paul Lam, an Australian GP in 2010, works as a non-profit organisation to promote evidence based medical research into the benefits of Tai Chi and develop the professional role of Tai Chi instructors around the world.

We especially welcome people who live with long term health conditions, a disability, or people recovering from injury or a surgical procedure. We do recommend you speak with your GP or trusted healthcare professional if you have any doubts about joining our class.
