Shibashi Tai Chi

Shibashi Tai Chi

I now have a Live class held on a Tuesday at 4pm at the Allerford & Selworthy Village Hall. 
On Thursday 2nd September at 11am I am starting another Live class at The Quaker Meeting House in Minehead.
Class numbers are limited so if you are interested, please give me a call on 07596 175973 or email to confirm your place.
I still have two on-line classes on Wednesday and Friday mornings 10.30am to 11.30am.
Classes are paid for, in advance, in a block of 6 at £8 a class (so £48).  I currently have space on my Friday class as numbers are limited
Tai Chi is a wonderful way of supporting your mental wellbeing, as well as being a gentle method of exercise, enabling you to destress your mind, boost your immune system and maintain strength and flexibility in all your muscles and joints, thus connecting you mind to your breath.  All this by simply breathing slowly and deeply, whilst doing 18 easy Tai Chi moves.  
All the Groups support one another, and are friendly and all believe in challenging their minds and bodies to develop and grow. 
If you would like to have a 1:2:1 class with me before joining either an on-line or 'Live' class please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss the best way forward on 07596 175973 or email

Bowen Therapy

Bowen Technique

£50 for the first treatment and £45 thereafter. I initially recommend between 1- 3 consecutive visits as Bowen is a progressive treatment that allows the body time to get to the 'cause' of the symptom, followed by maintenance treatments every 6-8 weeks or to suit your needs to keep on top of the condition.
