We offer Tai Chi and Qi Gong classes in Reading (Berkshire) on Tuesdays in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. They are a combination of gentle movement and mindful breathing making you feel aligned, relaxed and energised. The classes are suitable for all ages and abilities, everyone is welcome!

New to Tai Chi? No problem! Our Beginners Course is perfect for those who have never done Tai Chi before or learned it long time ago and want to refresh their knowledge. The course is structured and progressive, giving you the opportunity to learn (or discover!) the foundations of Tai Chi.
