Benefits of Classes: At present it goes without saying our city of Christchurch is going through a rebuild process. People need a safe environment to go for normality, a break away from home or work to release stress and anxiety, which in turn will deliver a sense of well being and balance to their lives. This can be achieved by participating in one of my many classes.

I have taken Roger's COMMUNITY PILATES CLASSES for several years. I like the comprehensive mix of exercises which ensure that all parts of the body are targeted. Roger offers a range of options to suit differing levels of flexibility and strength and encourages you to gently challenge yourself. What I have valued most though is the friendly ease of the classes where you are made to feel welcome, that you can ask questions or offer suggestions. Karen Harbers I have been battling chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia for many years and had heard that TAI CHI CLASSES was great for many things, so i was keen to try it. The very first class I took with Roger was beneficial for me; I came away from it feeling very relaxed and centred. I feel that way after every class. Roger is an excellent instructor, he teaches from a holistic view point and explains each movement thoroughly to ensure you do it properly so you can gain the most you can from practicing Tai Chi. Wendy Seymour The CHIBALL TM CLASS has provided me with an opportunity to enter into a world of self-indulgence, escapism, and a much needed nurturing of my mind, body and spirit. Kate Goodrick As an octogenian I want to say how much I’ve enjoyed your classes I find the breathing and gentle exercise really set me up for the rest of the week. Cheers Dot
