Qigong (chi kung) and Taijiquan (t'ai chi ch'uan) classes in Morecambe and Garstang with Andi Chapple

An introductory video

Classes and one-to-one teaching for 2023

Taiji and qigong for beginners and improvers

We use qigong (Wild Goose in Morecambe, a variety of sets in Garstang) as a self-care system and the basis for a grammar of movement which helps with the taiji. The emphasis is on practice, so if you don't come to every session you won't miss stuff.

The class in Garstang is at the YMCA on Windsor Road, near Booths supermarket. It runs from 10.30am until 12 noon on Wednesdays. The class is free to Fylde Coast YMCA members and costs £6 for non-members. There is some parking outside the venue. Please pre-book as the class is sometimes close to its limit for numbers. The class is long-established (I am just its latest teacher) with a mix of experienced and newer people and a really nice welcoming feel. Here is a link to the Fylde Coast YMCA website where members can book on the class; non-members can book by calling 01995 605410.

The class in Morecambe is at the United Reform Church hall, Sefton Road LA3 1TZ (I think this is not the right postcode but it will take you close by). It runs from 10 to 11.30am on Tuesdays (no class on 21 February). Classes cost £5 and are free for asylum seekers and refugees. Parking is on the streets outside the venue. The class is organised so people can drop in as they are able.

I am also available for a one-to-one look at any of the above as well as taiji push hands and staff. Get in touch.
