Alan ran a Special Tai Chi session for the Perranporth memory Cafe at St Michaels Hall similar to one he ran at the same location last year. Most of the members were in the seated position so all the exercises were modified to suit most of the individuals.
The session commenced with gentle warm up exercises and breathing techniques. Alan then did an exercise involving  7 Tai Chi movements, initially individually and then in combinations using alternate hands. At the end of that particular session the group performed all the exercises as a short form.
The group also did further exercises and movements including those for the feet and legs. The group finished off performing a short 6 movement Form adapted from the Sun 30 Form.

Alan commenced the first Tai Chi session at the hall between and 3pm. Initially there were 8 students that attended who either had no previous experience of Tai Chi or had not practised for some time. The session included a gentle warm up and light stretches and breathing exercises. The group then practised 7 Tai Chi exercise movements both individually and then as a small form using alternate hands.
The group then practised Tai Chi walks and steps and finished off with the first 4 movements of the 18 Chi Kung Form, both individually and then as a a combination.

Alan ran a Tai Chi session at the Village Hall for a Rheumatoid Arthritis Group.
​The session included a talk on the benefits of Tai Chi and Qigong for people suffering from the condition and also suitable exercises and movements. 
The group were very willing and fully participated in the exercises and showed a positive outlook towards how they could benefit from them.

Alan ran a Tai Chi session at the Fayre as part of an Holistic Healing Day. The session included warm up a gentle warm up and breathing exercises; 7 Tai Chi Exercises/movements both individually and then as a short form combination; other Tai Chi movements together with moving in different directions to practice Tai Chi walks and turns. There was 9 people that participated who stated that they had thoroughly enjoyed the class. 3 of the group were Alan's students and 2 others later joined other classes that Alan runs.
