Welcome to Longwater Tai Chi

Jane and Patrick Foley teach Tai Chi as a relaxing, enjoyable exercise. Its slow, meditative movements are practised by millions of people for their proven health benefits. We both switched from successful careers to spread our love of Tai Chi. Between us we have over 50 years of experience in the art. We teach regular classes and workshops in Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset UK and sometimes further afield.

We have a broad curriculum and teach Tai Chi, its ancient sister art Qigong, and Meditation in various ways to suit different levels of interest and ability. Our main focus is to nourish the body, mind and spirit and lead you to a life of better health and wellbeing.  Read more about our current classes and workshops. If you are a beginner and want to know what might suit you best, please visit our beginners page or contact us.

We also still regularly attend both local and international events with our teachers Bruce Frantzis, Sam Masich, Brian Cooper and Dr Paul Lam.
