Shintaido is a joyful health exercise originating in traditional Japanese martial arts. It is designed to be accessible to all.

The benefits can include: reducing stress, enhancing creativity, and increasing concentration.

This class is especially designed for people 40+, seniors, or in fact, anyone who would like to take up a regular exercise programme. Through gentle exercises, soft yet energizing movements and meditation, we can activate the flow of ki (energy) within our bodies promoting health and inner peace.
