Colin Snow your instructor has been studying the healing art of Tai Chi for over 35 years.
His work experience has extended into senior communities, healthcare, education & rehabilitation.

He helped develop & train instructors for the nationwide Tai Chi for Better Balance program,
a research based training program for adults at risk of falling & with balance disorders.

Natural Step Tai Chi is accessible to all, regardless of age, ability or current level of health.
Everything is learnt & practiced through knowing one’s personal soft limit.

Attention is brought to correct postural alignment & how to relax the body.
Movements are slow & undertaken below the speed of habit.
This allows the participant to become more present to their surroundings & become aware of how they are using their body in everyday situations.

No parts of the body are forced or stretched.
If the body has limitations then these are embraced & not seen as obstacles.

How does it work?

For comfort & confidence in our day to day movements we have to rely upon the function & strength of the lower body.
In Tai Chi we begin by first establishing a grounded connection through the body to the feet.

By practicing our ability to sink attention into the feet, we become more conscious of the lower body.
Using this basic Tai Chi principle in movement gently encourages the natural functioning of the legs, lower body joints & muscles to return.
Repetition & regular practice of the movements then sustains function as the body begins to
re-align and grow stronger
