Tai Chi Movements for Wellbeing

We’re starting new Tai Chi Movements for Wellbeing groups around the country.

Tai Chi

Tai Chi Movements for Wellbeing (TMW) can be beneficial for people with lung conditions. That's why we're working together with TMW Training Ltd to train our Asthma + Lung UK Active instructors to provide weekly classes.

What is Tai Chi Movements for Wellbeing?

Tai Chi Movements for Wellbeing, or TMW for short, is a simple series of movements that can help you feel better physically and emotionally. The TMW sequence has its roots in Tai Chi and Chi Kung, and is straightforward and easy to do. You can do it sitting down, or standing up, so anyone can have a go.

In addition to being beneficial for your physical health, TMW is also a good way to learn mental aspects of Tai Chi, like mindfulness. Mindfulness is a meditation tool that can be very positive for your mental health and wellbeing.
