Join Philip Sheridan, founder of Discover Tai Chi, as he takes you on a deep dive into the ancient, embodied movements of qigong. Phil brings an unprecedented level of knowledge and experience to these sessions with over 37 years of practice in tai chi, qigong, embodied practice, and other martial arts.

Learn simple evidence-based tai chi and discover the many benefits for your health and wellbeing. This inclusive session can be enjoyed by participants seated or standing. Your family/friends can join in too! No experience is necessary, and everyone is welcome to take part.

"Studies show that regular tai chi not only improves our physical health and fitness but it also has quite a powerful benefit for our brains too. For wheelchair users tai chi can prove especially beneficial for improving the range of motion in the shoulders and neck as well as easing tension. Importantly, studies show that adapted tai chi and qigong is a safe physical activity that can be enjoyed by everyone." (Philip Sheridan)
