"I have been attending James Drew's Taiji classes for a number of years at the Abbey community centre. I love the classes for their variety and their attention to detail. We don't just learn to go through the moves of the Taiji form, but we learn also what these moves mean and how we can improve them. Over the years I have found that each move has so many intricate details, that it is impossible to get tired of studying them. James also teaches a variety of health improving Qi Gong forms, including for the digestion, the cardiovascular system, the heart, the liver and the kidneys. They are all fun to do and have the added benefit of improving our health even more."
