Sue has been a yoga teacher for over 20 years. She has concentrated mainly on setting up and teaching private mixed ability, adult classes but has very broad experience in teaching students of all ages, some on a one to one basis.

Chi Kung with Max Mainini

 If you are looking to develop your sense of calmness and relaxation in an increasingly fast paced world, or to help keep your body and joints healthy, then chi kung is something you will enjoy. What is it? Roughly translated to ‘energy work’, practising Chi Kung enhances the flow of chi (vital energy) through the body. The exercises are often slow, gentle and flowing, and may take the form of static postures, slow movements and special walking exercises. These are often inspired by nature and help keep the body supple, invigorate and enhance body function and as well as helping to develop mental clarity and inner stillness. Join a class…. Here on Mondays from 6.30-7.30pm on 23/1 30/1 6/2 13/2 20/2 27/2 To book a place, please see Chi Kung Malvern or call Max on 07976239855 The classes are perfect for beginners and those with experience.
