Current classes

We teach Chen Tai Chi, this is the oldest of the five main styles of Tai Chi that exist today. It is the original style from which the other main styles have derived.

This style is characterised by flowing, spiralling and twining movements it exercises the body in a very natural and efficient way. It is the mindful practice of spiralling movement through the body that inspired our name.

Chen style arrived in the West relatively recently but as a result has managed to preserve its authenticity.

The Tai Chi taught in Spiralling Energy Tai Chi is as taught by Grandmaster Chen Xiao Wang.

While the martial aspect of Chen Tai Chi is still very evident it is now mainly used to promote physical and mental health. Tai Chi’s unique combination of mental and physical activity helps to harmonise the mind, body and spirit and enhance wellbeing.

All current classes focus on the open hand technique of tai chi, these are the images of flowing body form. It is of great fascination that adding the practice of weapons forms including Spear, Broadsword, and Double Broadsword increases the feeling of energy flow through the body and so at some point it is intended that these forms will be offered as additional classes.
