Teachers

Nick Hall- has a diverse background to bring to his sessions. His path started with Karate in the 1970s, and Taichi in the 1980s. He travelled to China in 2016 to continue his studies (with Master Fu Nengbin), and was certificated as a teacher (by Master LimingYue) in Manchester in 2017. Taichi can improve physical and mental health in many ways, and particularly posture and balance. A typical session starts with easy warm-up exercises for the joints, followed by meditative breathing and moving exercises.The main practice is working on a ‘form’ - a flowing dance that moves naturally from one posture to another. Nick teaches form Chen style ‘old frame’ forms (the oldest and most traditional form of Taichi), and some other arts (elements of Kungfu and Bagua). As well as promoting physical and mental fitness, forms can be artistic creations of great beauty, passed down from ancient times directly from teacher to student. taigarden@hotmail.com 07772 602186
