Modern Pilates is accessible for nearly everyone: it is great for core strength,

mobility, stability, balance, sports performance, pre-hab and back pain prevention. Choices within exercises allow modifications for those with osteoporosis, knee problems etc.  Classes during school term time.

Tai Chi Qigong is wonderful for the breath, relaxation, and fluidity of movement:  a moving meditation and a route to finding peace (as well as improving at golf!).  Each short rhythmic Qigong movement is repeated several times.  

Outdoor Qigong sessions are held during school-term time on riverside Gargrave Water St Green BD23 3LY, morning sessions located between the River Aire and the war memorial opposite Bollywood Cottage restaurant, a scenic sheltered all-weather spot including year-round tree canopy: a great spot for Tai Chi Qigong.  Qigong amongst the trees  in the evening is at a peaceful venue on the edge of Gargrave, which we walk to together after meeting at the village centre.

Guided walks can include stops for Tai Chi Qigong for a calming additional dimension.  A great way of exploring more of the Gargrave area with its intricate network of footpaths and uplifting views - highly recommended!
