About the Instructors, Ray & SJ
Ray Guest has been training for 20 years and runs the Bexleyheath class for Master Hine. Ray is a former Learning and Development Operations Manager and he began his training in Tai Chi because he has always had an interest in the Arts and wanted to gain a greater understanding and insight into them. Ray has found that Tai Chi has helped him to develop in a number of directions, both physical and mental. Ray is also a Pa Kua instructor, helping Sifu teach his class in Bromley.

Health & Fitness Benefits
One of the main benefits of Tai Chi is the reduction in blood pressure, but it is also good for breathing, posture, balance, stamina, weight loss and calming of the mind. Practising daily changes your way of thinking and helps with concentration, memory and creativity. It can also help with anxiety, arthritis and back pain, while also helping people boost their inner energy levels and immune systems. The sequence of gentle, flowing exercise movements incorporated into the art help to tone the body, strengthen joints and fight diseases. (With regular practice all of the above benefits can be achieved.)
The origins of tai chi go back many hundreds of years, yet people from all walks of life are now profiting from its practice. The health benefits have attracted both young and old alike in ever-increasing numbers, yet tai chi is more than simply an art for health or gentle exercise, it’s a way of life. Tai Chi is meditation in movement, a martial art, and a whole new way of perceiving yourself and everything around you. Tai Chi is practised by millions of people who consider it to be an integral part of their everyday lives.
