Walton on Thames Class:
Kevin Mullins My name is Kevin Mullins and I am a Franchise instructor for the Hine Tai Chi Schools Ltd. I have been training with Master John Hine for over 20 years, assist him at his seminars, and help teach the Hsing Yi class. In normal life I am a chartered Civil Engineer working in the City. I started Tai Chi with a group of friends because of the balance that is required between strength and grace. I love studying and practicing Tai Chi because it is as much a mental exercise as a physical one.
Pointers for beginners: all the details you need to know regarding clothing, footwear etc and our complete, free information pack.
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.)
Learn at home? Master Hine has published a book, DVD and video which follow the form as we teach it in the classes. These are invaluable to aid your home study and progress in the class. And we now have CD’s for stress & meditation as well, so why not order one, for details on prices please go to Products
