Gary

Tai Chi & Qi Gong

I have been teaching Tai Chi for 35 years.

Tai Chi is an exercise for health and well-being. Tai Chi may provide relief in a range of disorders including anxiety, arthritis, fatigue, joint stiffness and stress.

Health benefits are derived from the Tai Chi’s slow, gentle and tranquil movements which enable harmony in body and mind, improved mobility, suppleness and mental alertness.

People of all ages and fitness levels can practice and benefit from Tai Chi. Loose, comfortable clothing and flat shoes should be worn to class.

Qi Gong literally means ‘breathing exercise’. It is a great way to unwind and promote health and a greater sense of well-being.

For class information, please call Gary on 0407 855 344. The cost for classes with Gary is $10 per class.


Daile

Pilates

Pilates improves flexibility, balance and builds core strength. It emphasises correct posture, alignment, breathing and isolating core muscles. The exercises can be modified to suit beginners.

I have been teaching Pilates for 15 years primarily using floor / mat work.

Bronwyn

Pilates

I have been working in the fitness industry for more than 20 years as a group fitness instructor, Aqua instructor and personal trainer. I have an interest in women’s health and currently work in Allied Health.

I have been teaching Pilates for a number of years and continually updating my knowledge and skill through personal development and study.

I love Pilates, it encompasses many elements of fitness including strength, flexibility, endurance, power and encourages focus on body alignment and pelvic stability. Pilates exercises will not only strengthen weak muscles, but will also elongate muscles that tend to be tight resulting in improved joint mobility, improved muscle elasticity and complete body balance.

This particular class is mat based and a great exercise program for people of all ages, abilities and fitness level.
