MDA Teaching Approach
Learn at your own pace with expert tuition

Classes are friendly, groups are small and teaching is always person-centred – each according to their needs. Everyone can learn Tai Chi Chuan, which can alleviate many physical problems, especially those caused by stress and tension. It's a gentle form of exercise that slowly builds strength, stamina and flexibility. In addition, posture and balance start to improve from the earliest weeks of practice.

You are welcome to watch a class or, even better, try a taster session to experience why millions of people round the world love Tai Chi Chuan.

At MDA Headquaters, we runs regular six-week introductory courses and beginnners are welcome.

Class structure:

1. Chi Kung - a standing meditation
Helps to relax and settle the body and mind.

2. Taoist core exercises
A sequence of warm-up exercises to prepare the body for the main part of the lesson. Gently stimulates the muscular, skeletal and nervous systems.

3. Form
The foundation form, distilled by Master Ding from the 108-move Yang Style Long form. Each posture is taught so the student internalises it before moving on to the next one. There is no rush - each person learns at their own pace.

4. Settling breathing exercises
A short sequence to settle the body's systems at the end of the class.
If you have any queries, please contact us or speak to the Branch Instructor after the class.
