My name is Caroline and I teach Tai Chi classes in 3 Counties: North Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and South Yorkshire.
My Facebook page is now “Caroline’s Tai Chi and Qigong”
The content on this website aims to support students in my classes as well as providing background information on the many health benefits of Tai Chi and Qigong.
I have been practising Tai Chi for over 19 years and my aim is to introduce this gentle yet very effective form of exercise to as many people as possible.
At present I am able to offer classes in the Bolsover area, in Whitwell (5 minutes from Creswell, famous for the Crags Heritage Site); In Chesterfield on Derby Road at St Augustine’s church and most recently in Mosborough, Sheffield (Near to Crystal Peaks shopping centre) These venues are all easily accessible from neighbouring towns and villages: Clowne, Hodthorpe, Welbeck, Cuckney, Edwinstowe, Harthill, Dinnington, South Anston, Woodsetts, Mastin Moor, Barlborough, Beighton, Drakehouse, Halfway, Harthill and Staveley.
I spent 22 years as a mainstream teacher of English in Further Education Colleges, which means that I know how to teach, and my Tai Chi students often tell me that this is of great benefit to them. I still love English, and I love teaching but I don’t love the UK system with its over-emphasis on targets and assessments.
My main objective in teaching Tai Chi and Qigong is to make sure that everyone in my class, including me, has a good time, is relaxed and happy, and reaps the physical and mental benefits of practising Tai Chi and Qigong.
