- "After a fall years ago, I have developed difficulties with balance and I now walk with a stick. These classes have enormously developed my sense of balance. It follows now that, instead of expecting a near future of less and less mobility, I anticipate to be mobile as long as I live."
- "It has taken away the fear of falling."
- "The classes have taught me to sit, walk and generally hold myself up properly. They have helped to ease tension especially in my back and to relax my body."
I have discovered something marvellous. This morning I had a sore throat, felt slightly feverish and was out of sorts because I hadn't slept very well. Then I went to a session of Alexander technique, mixed with Tai Chi. (At Letchworth Centre for Healthy Living). I came away feeling absolutely marvellous. I still have a sore throat and a bit of a high temperature - but my sense of wellbeing is so great that it really doesn't seem to matter. Thank you Ian Deavin and Judy Hammond for a great Sunday morning! - Julie Furnivall
- "Good relaxation and feel good."
- "I am more aware of my posture – by doing the exercises it has helped with my backaches. My knees are also much improved….I have suffered pain for several years."
- "I feel better in myself that I was able to do Tai Chi."
- "My handwriting has improved – my hand used to shake but it is much steadier now."
- "My reason for choosing Tai Chi was that I needed to reduce the tension my body would store as a result of normal daily activities and I felt that Tai Chi would be the answer. I needed to persevere in the early months as it was quite a difficult concept to relax and let go of tension by moving with tiny adjustments to my posture. Now it is almost second nature to check and recheck my posture in order to relax and ease the tension.
Looking back to the early months of Tai Chi I learnt how to listen to my body as it told me the discomforts that I had to release and work to ease. When I started I had a knee injury and a lower back niggle which was frequently needing adjustment by a practitioner. My knee is no longer an issue and my back is kept comfortable by small and regular positional checks throughout Tai Chi sessions and exercises and in daily living" - Sheila Biscoe
- "I feel more relaxed here."
- "Better movement in lower back."
- "Since I started Tai Chi I have been doing standing Chi Kung for 20 minutes each day and my sciatica has gone (so no more regular visits to the sports physio at £50 per month). Also my insomnia has gone."
- "I am more aware of how my body works and I can do things the correct movement way."
- "Since starting tai chi with Ian I have noticed an increase in energy levels and a calmer state of mind. It does take work and practice, but is most definitely worth the effort" - Carla N
