Dumbell sculpt is a great way to strengthen and tone muscles. The class will focus on strength and conditioning through functional and cardio movements. No experience needed as the teacher will adapt according to level.

Tai Chi with equipment

‘Moving meditation’ using tai chi ball, staff and Indian clubs Rooted in the traditional martial arts of Asia, our approach is meditative, calming and relaxing, aiming to help improve posture and breathing, and to gently build strength and resilience, improve coordination, relieve negative stress and help develop concentration. We begin each class with a focus on sitting with good posture and breathing well to settle the mind, align and relax the body. Next, we stand still to further improve body awareness, followed by a tai chi ‘warm-up’, ahead of varied training drills with tai chi ball, staff and Indian clubs. There is a focus on developing whole body relaxed circularity, strength and power without strain, and harnessing the body’s natural springiness and elasticity to release tension and move effectively with less effort. The class ends with a closing ‘cool-down stretch’ and gentle self-massage. The format is similar each week although the content varies from week to week.
