Transformotion DMP are delivering Tai Chi and Qi Gong sessions online and are really encouraged by feedback from their participants.

People who were initially reluctant to use technology have discovered new skills and through virtual classes the Nantwich-based company have been able to reach more people and offer more sessions than before when they physically located.

Some participants have expressed that, even with all the challenges associated with delivering online, the sessions have been a ‘lifeline’ during the lockdown period.

Funding from Cheshire East Carer’s Hub and Cheshire Community Foundation has meant that they are able to offer free sessions for anyone affected.

The offer includes Tai Chi & Qi Gong, using forms that work well with the space that people have when participating from home.

With regular practice Tai Chi and Qi Gong may also boost the immune system and assist with respiratory capacity.
