3JFitness are super excited to add Tai Chi (movements for wellbeing) to our Berkshire Nordic Walking diary.
Janine is one of the first NWUK instructors to complete the inaugural program written exclusively for us. We have focused on 8 movements that blend in and compliment our fresh air fitness philosophy. Both exercises programs have so many scientifically backed benefits and the synergistic effect of using both together as a daily exercise routine is unbeatable! It has become recognised worldwide as two of the most powerful ways to improve both physical and mental health.
Tai Chi Movements for Wellbeing gives you a feeling of wellbeing and wholeness through graceful poetic, mindful movements. It derives from the traditions of Tai Chi and Chi King (Qi Qong) but without the complexity of these traditional forms. We have added it to our Nordic Walking as they compliment each other beautifully especially out in the wondrous green space and mother nature.
Let the Healing Powers of Tai Chi & Nordic Walking change your daily health and wellness forever.
The secret to a happier, healthier more vital life is now yours!
In an increasing number of medical studies on both Nordic Walking and Tai Chi has been found to help almost everything, from lowering blood pressure to managing stress to building strength and balance for Fall Prevention!

In Janine’s own words;
What is Tai Chi Movements for Well Being?
It’s a peaceful and mindful sequence of movements that stimulate the mind, body and soul. You are adding kindfullness into your life that will help nourish the mind, body and soul. It helps you live life rather than survive it.
In fact upon completing her certification she did also say;
“Can you believe that I was rendered speechless as the effect has been so calming and peaceful.”
Janine, speechless? Nah!
Look out for it in the diary for you try too. It is not exclusively for our Gentle Paces; we want to share it with everyone as you all need time out to slow down. That’s how you strengthen.
