Alison has developed Tai Chi Based Exercise training for staff in special schools, and people working with the elderly, and adults with physical disabilities or learning difficulties.
Participants gain skills, tools and confidence to offer Tai Chi Based Exercise sessions in their setting, learning: how to support and inspire people to take part safely in gentle exercise which can help maintain and improve their general health and mobility; some basic principles of Tai Chi; simple movement sequences; and ways to create a peaceful atmosphere for the sessions.
Alison has run many classes for students in special schools across a full range of abilities.
She works with school staff to develop and implement suitable assessment and evaluation for individual students and classes.
