Tai Chi Tigers Breathe-Tap-Stretch free exercise routines for all!

The instructors of Tai Chi Tigers are exceptionally well and busy making videos  freely, for people to help  overcome the isolation and loneliness during these Covid restrictions, to improve their health and wellbeing – mentally and physically, in their own homes, on their own or with a partner, children  or anyone else allowed.

They are free to everyone – take a look and try them for yourself and family here. Good idea? then please pass on and share them.

The series started as a 7-day Challenge but with such a brilliant response we felt it would benefit everyone by continuing.

So, creating a daily habit that you can fit into each and every day, at any time, we add a little more each week!

The series, Breathe – Tap – Stretch, is available on YouTube starting with this one.

We hope it will help as many people as possible – so seated or standing – sound and text prompts, we hope to have given everyone the opportunity to benefit.

The exercises look simple but trying them out, you can feel the difference – give them a go!

Please encourage people to at least try one of the videos – they are created for every one…fit, unfit, less-able, mentally and physically challenged, people hard of hearing and visually challenged with voice and text throughout.

They are simple to follow, simple to do, going through each of them at a personal pace – we hope they will help everyone – young and old.


We have some fabulous feedback from people who don’t know us, and people who have never done anything like this before…

“Last year I had the Virus and was very ill, didn’t go to hospital but it was very close. What saved me was remembering the Tai Chi breathing exercises that you shown at your classes” David R 

“Doing the challenge every morning, before doing anything else, has given me a focus and a real beginning to the day. My mojo is back!!!” Sue H

“Thank you for inspiring us to move in a morning  – not always easy at the moment. Never thought that tapping would do it. The exercises for wrists and hips are quite challenging for my arthritis but hopefully I will improve with practice. 

Thank you for your time & energy”. Val H
