HERNE HILL TAI CHI CLUB, Tuesdays at St Paul's, Herne Hill

 

7pm Tuesdays

St Pauls Church Hall

Herne Hill SE24 9LY

 

12 class term £90.00

 

Come along next Tuesday and give one a go. For free! Friendly group! Tai Chi can help to get you balanced, centred and relaxed. Rupert Ingham, the class teacher, has studied with some of the most knowledgeable people in this field. It's a Yang-style 楊氏 Tai Chi Chüan class from 7 till 8:30pm.

 

There are six major styles of Tai Chi, the Yang-family school is one of them. It focuses most closely on Yáng Chéngfǔ's (1900) thirteen classic tai chi 'Fixed Postures'. Yáng Chéngfǔ removed many of the more acrobatic movements which his grandfather and Yang school founder Yang Lu-chan incorporated.

 

Local Instructor Launches Yoga Nidra CD and Website

A local tai chi teacher and yoga instructor has just released a Yoga Nidra CD on his own website, which he has also recently launched with the help of RBM Design, a locally-based and grassroots design concern.

 

Rupert Ingham, who teaches tai chi at St Paul's Church in Herne Hill once a week and also works with yoga students on a one to one basis in the local area, decided to release the CD to help people relax and become more successful decision-makers in the process. For many people, today's increasingly frantic, stress-related lifestyles can lead to debilitating anxiety, depression and confusion, with immune systems compromised in the bargain.

 

Ingham's CD (and classes) hinge on two principles at the heart of yogic concentration - mindfulness and relaxation. According to Ingham, "Mindfulness is the art of gently focussing one's mind and concentrating one's awareness. Deep relaxation is the art of arriving in the state of deepest possible rest. The CD is designed, through its series of meditation exercises, to help students achieve this."
