These classes are led by Alan Smith, founder of Heartland Tai Chi,

who has over 35 years experience teaching Tai Chi and meditation.


Similar classes are inter-changeable so,

if one week you can’t come to your regular class, you can come to another class instead.



The Tai Chi for Living Well (TLW) classes focus on learning some simple and enjoyable Tai Chi movements with an emphasis upon posture, relaxation and breath awareness.

They are suitable for all ages.

TLW promotes better posture, balance, energy and well-being.


Mindful movements for a healthier life.
