 Have you heard about the Benefits of Daoist Tai Chi – called Lishi?


Lishi is the comprehensive name given to the system. It is based on using relaxed, tension free exercises to develop our energy (Qi). Why not read about Lishi and perhaps sign up for the on line videos as well as joining us in Thornton Le Dale, at these times of self isolation? See https://www.lishi.org/


We welcome all 18-91 year olds. We have the oldest student in the contry (90 years old) at our Leeds classes. Worried that you have no experience of Daoist Tai Chi?


Come along - you are sure of a warm welcome ... Why not bring a friend?


 It’s worth getting up for on a Saturday!


For more information/book your place. Call Phil 07921100188


We have built up a group of regulars from the local area but we are very happy to welcome people on holiday, staying in the area or visiting for the day.


The benefits of Daoist exercise systems are phenomenal and if you are looking to improve your health, fitness, confidence or well-being in any way, then you are lucky to be reading this webpage. Click here for more details about Lishi or click the link below. Or find us on Facebook at Lishi Tai Chi Thornton le Dale 


Our classes and courses are friendly and welcoming with people of all ages and abilities. You are very welcome and are guaranteed to have fun, so if you think this could be for you, come along. All you need is loose comfortable clothing (e.g. tracksuit bottoms, T-shirt and trainers).
