I find the stretching and poses a great benefit and relief from more strenuous classes…

I have noticed improved flexibility, balance and co-ordination

In the short time I have been doing tai chi, I have noticed improved flexibility, balance and co-ordination.  Agnes is an experienced instructor with a very pleasant manner.  She is able to teach equally well beginners as those with a lot of experience. Tai chi is a wonderful alternative to yoga, for someone like me with osteoarthritis, as it has similar benefits to yoga but without the pressure on my joints. – Sylvia Tugman

Linval is focused on helping me achieve my goals

I have now been training with Linval for almost 2 years now, and believe he is one of the most experienced & committed trainers around.

I have really enjoyed the variety & challenge he put into my personal one-on-one session! Linval is focused on helping me achieve my goals and makes every session challenging (&…
