"Prevention is better
than cure!" It is my firm belief that doing these exercises regularly
can prevent and relieve the symptoms of depression, anxiety and M.S., as
well as strengthening the body, boosting the immune system and improving
the quality of life.

"After many years of
severe back pain and having tried various treatments, I was depressed
and felt that the pain ruled my life. I came to Barry's class and it
completely rebalanced and strengthened my back. With grateful thanks."

Before meeting Barry,
I suffered from arthritis of most of my joints: my feet, hands, hips
etc. I met Barry through a mutual friend who told me of the Chi Baton®. I
was under consultants, hospital appointments, regular physio, the lot.
After starting the Chi Baton I began to feel better over a period of
time. Now I have started back to work and resumed keeping fit again,
which I did a lot before my illness. Since doing Chi Baton® Exercises, I feel
my health has improved one hundred per cent. Thank you Barry.

I have been
attending Barry's Chinese Yoga class for over five years now and still
enjoy every single class. Unlike most classes, we undertake a wide
variety of exercise including Chi Baton®, core strengthening and
breathing exercises, so you never get bored. Barry has an extensive
knowledge of the workings of the human body and will often tailor a
class to suit a problem area, for example the back or shoulders. I am
convinced that it is the practices learnt at these classes that have
helped me cope with my recent cancer treatments. However tired I feel
before a class I always leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. L.P
recommend Chi Baton® Yoga to beginners or students of yoga looking for something
different. After a very short time you start to feel the benefits. Barry is an
excellent teacher who explains the exercise simply and thoroughly. No time to
get bored repeating classes as they are constantly changing. There is also an
element of fun in the classes. I hate to have to miss a class. A.J.

Top quality instruction
from a highly qualified and experienced master. An
excellent instructor. Whether you are looking for a brilliant exercise
system or to develop your martial skills I can highly recommend him. J.S.
started going to Chi Baton® 6 years ago after being diagnosed with cancer, and
found it extremely beneficial both then and now. I am sure that my continued
good health is down to adopting so many of the class principles in everyday
life. Barry is an extremely knowledgeable teacher and designs his programmes
round the needs of his classes, and is always willing to add things in on
request. It has been invaluable in many ways - gentle, but powerful exercise,
strengthens the core, helps with breathing and supporting my health. The
atmosphere is relaxed and supportive of one another and I have made many
lifetime friends as a result of going to class. S.W.
has a unique way of teaching us things about ourselves that are both insightful
and enlightening. His passion for Tai Chi comes through in his training sessions
and his observations on many aspects of life have had a positive impact on me
personally and how I live my life. J.S.
is an enthusiastic and knowledgeable teacher. His love of Tai Chi is
communicated to the whole class. He instils so much energy into each session, it
just makes us want more of the same. To me, Barry has given an insight into both
the art and science of this fascinating subject. G.W.
