Calm the Mind, Strengthen the Body, Polish the Spirit
Welcome to the Exeter School of Tai Chi Chuan
Chen style Tai Chi Chuan is a Chinese Martial Art that is famous around the world for the health and fitness benefits that it conveys. Since the year 2000 we have followed the teachings and training methods of the Head of the Chen Family, Grandmaster Chen Xiao Wang. We now also follow his nephew and Chief Coach, Master Chen Ziqiang.
Classes offer a challenging mix of holistic exercises that enhance body and mind. The body will gain strength, flexibility, co-ordination, relaxation and balance. The mind is trained to become calm and focused.
Our online classes continue and we also have three Tai Chi in the Park sessions available too:
Monday 10.00am-11.00am with Jessica
Thursday 10.30am-11.30am with Tom
Thursday 11.45am-12.45pm with Jessica
All sessions are held in Pinces Gardens, Exeter EX2 9EN (near the historic wisteria tunnel).
Advance booking is required to ensure we remain in line with current guidance of five attendees plus one instructor.
Contact the instructors direct to book your place and arrange payment in advance.
All Classes will now have the same Meeting ID Number on Zoom. Contact us for the details.
