A sharing from Sophie –
“I found it very difficult to switch off and find any ‘me time’ Discovering Tai Chi has changed all that, helping me control my stress levels and provide me with that vital space to let go and relax.In turn it has deepened the connection between my mind and body developing good core strength and finding beauty in the movements, which are created in the Tai Chi forms. I love nothing more than to share the teachings of Tai Chi in their development and learning. “
