Tai Chi Classes

Our school offers public Taiji (Tai Chi) classes in Manchester, Tameside and Stockport

Jian Taiji has 2 qualified instructors, Ian and Janet providing step by step instruction at all our classes along with individual feedback.

We also provide bespoke classes for groups and organisations (shown below) along with personal training on request. 

Please contact us for availability and rates or any other questions not covered in our FAQ.


Tiers? No tears

As Lockdown 2 finishes, we were hoping to be able to get back to classes. However under the Tier 3 restrictions we are not permitted to run indoor classes despite being covid secure.

But dry those tiers, we can still do small outdoor groups and hope you are raring to join us.

So if you're interested in blowing off those cobwebs let us know a couple of days/times you would be available and we'll investigate, discuss and collate before getting back to you with more details. We'll also be continuing with the discounted rate 1 to 1's for those that appreciate our undivided attention!

Remember that life is yin and yang, you can't have one without the other and accepting this allows for balance, harmony and piece of mind
