Time Out Tai Chi

We help you to share the calming health benefits of this
modern-day adaptation of an ancient mindful exercise
through our Mindful Movement Mentorship

Why is this community of Time Out Tai Chi Leaders, for YOU?

Exercise is about taking the important ‘me time” to strengthen your body and mind. It increases your self-worth and decreases your risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular & other diseases.
By leading well you provide a social connection for those you work with and  promote better mental wellbeing and a sense of belonging.

Self-care is the best way for you to help those around you be healthy and happier by maintaining your body, mind and connection wellbeing.

Your Family’s overall wellbeing can be enhanced by modelling positive wellness activities and sharing the benefits of mindful movement.

Workplaces can be a hectic and a disconnected part of our lives, by adding exercise to everyone’s “to do list”, you will be help decrease negative stress and build resilience with the workplace.

Your Clients often have outside influences interfering with their health & exercise goals. Whether it is a physical injury or mental distress, you can use the skills learnt in this program to have them finding a safe place with you, to keep them moving towards their wellness goals.

For Students the constant sitting at computers and barrage of online content can take a toll on their bodies and minds, with Time Out Tai Chi we focus on what each one of us can do, rather than barriers of “I can’t”. Good Posture and Breathing techniques are two of the key tai chi principles we can develop through mindful movement.

Our modern day approach truly focuses on the concept of progress over perfection using intentional movement.

What is Tai Chi?

Originating in ancient China, Tai Chi is one of the most effective exercises for mind and body health.
Although an art with great depth of knowledge and skill, it can be easy to learn and soon delivers its health benefits.

For some it starts their exercise adventure, for many, it continues as a lifetime journey.
It focuses on good posture and breathing providing a calming & meditative effect.

Slow doesn't mean boring!

We are very serious about the benefits of Time Out Tai Chi, but we know you need to have a FUN and enjoyable intention behind any action.

That why we explore Tai Chi principles like GOOD POSTURE- standing tall makes you stronger, BREATHING – all excellent thing to do, WEIGHT TRANSFER – make you feel balanced & co-ordinated and BELONGING - to have a good laugh together.

Every body has the right to exercise.

Time Out Tai Chi classes can be done seated or standing depending where you are on the day.

Sometimes we all need to exercise seated as this helps with the relaxation and calmness when we are feeling unbalanced.

Students are encouraged to using "pacing" to allow their body to adapt to this mindful movement.
