tai chi for rehabilitation

Painting the Rainbow

The aim of Painting the Rainbow Tai Chi is to make Tai Chi in Birmingham and surrounding areas available to people in all walks of life and levels of mental and physical health.

To achieve this, we currently work with local hospitals providing tai chi for rehab to COPD patients, Cardiac, Rheumatology and falls prevention patients.

Chair based tai chi is an excellent introduction for all levels; from there we progress through the Painting the Rainbow tai chi program which includes seated chi-kung (qigong) through to tai chi movements suitable for those with more mobility.


In addition to this we run seated tai chi sessions for Age Concern, Community Groups, Day Centres, Special Needs centres among others. We have a seated tai chi DVD that supports our program, along with the chi-kung as demonstrated on the video's page, plus tai chi form DVD's.

To see video clips please visit the video's page by clicking here or the video clips tag in the menu on the left. To see pictures from some of our classes click on Gallery in the menu on the left


We provide regular FREE newsletters on tai chi and chi-kung which can be downloaded by clicking here

We have male and female instructors providing both sessions and staff training as this can be more cost effective in the long term.
