Stretch and tone classes are currently suspended until we can return to studio classes.
Designed for those over 50 years young, who would like to increase their confidence in movement and is suitable for people who are not used to regular exercise
The ethos of this class is to improve posture and attain overall health and wellbeing. Chi Me is a simpler form of Tai Chi and is used to improve balance and prevent falls. For one hour it is all about you and it is designed for you. As you are working on the physical body the mind gets to relax for this time.
Stretches used are suitable to each person’s ability aiming to achieve muscle strength and flexibility and improve balance and stability. Stretching exercises helps with the flow of the body systems, ie the digestive system, the expansion of the lungs, improves circulation and clears the mind.
Slow gentle movements using breathing techniques create a lovely flow of the forms that are easily learnt and very relaxing. A gentle aerobic section is included to exercise the heart, to help with coordination and balance all to a mix of old and new pop music. All good fun!
There is often a short relaxation/meditation time at the end of the class to prepare you for the rest of the week.
This class is run by Christine Chandler who has been an Holistic Therapist for over 25 years and still practices Reflexology, Counselling and Reiki.
