I have just completed the training and gained the qualification to teach Tai Chi Movements for Wellbeing. I will begin classes in September and am thrilled to be able to share this unique approach to gentle health promoting exercise. As I dived deeper into the training it became clear to me that TMW is embodied mindfulness.
Tai Chi Movements for Wellbeing (TMW) is a specially developed simple range of moves which promotes physical and emotional health and wellbeing. It combines the essential elements of Tai Chi and Chi Kung to allow you to feel the benefits of these wonderful arts easily, giving you greater confidence, reducing stress and tension, and putting a spring in your step!
The sequence was developed by internationally‐renowned Tai Chi master Richard Farmer and consultant clinical and neuro psychologist Dr David Quinn, and has been taken up by the NHS in Herefordshire and by the National Exercise Referral Scheme in Wales. It’s been shown to help in a whole range of issues, from managing long‐term health conditions, rehabilitation, depression, and the challenges associated with getting older.
TMW keeps your body relaxed, healthy and feeling well because it supports you to move and breathe with awareness, so you tune in to your own unique needs. It allows you to rebalance your mind and body, particularly beneficial if you’ve lost confidence or suffer from stress. It enables you to improve your flexibility and balance, and to increase your core strength.
