The Swan School of Tai Chi and Qigong is based in the beautiful area of Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire, and as Tai Chi and Qigong instructors we are committed to providing high quality professional classes and seminars for the whole community. There are currently over 10 regular classes available weekly in the Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick area, covering a wide range of age groups and abilities, including being the forerunner in offering antenatal classes specifically for pregnant women.


In our Chen style Tai Chi classes we teach the Laojia (Old Frame) form, passed down through the lineage of Grand Master Chen Xiao-Wang, the Chen family 19th generation Standard Bearer. Grand Master Chen visits the UK every spring time and his seminars are a must to attend.


In our Tai Chi and Qigong classes we teach a wide variety of traditional and more modern excerises, some of which date back over 1000 years, all of which are beautiful and help to target different areas of the body for health and healing.


The Swan School promotes and develops student knowledge and different experiences of Tai Chi and Qigong through arranging regular educational trips e.g. to the Inner Circle of Stonehenge; visiting lecturers and practitioners e.g. Grand Master Chen Xiao-Wang, Master Chen Yin-Jun and Eva & Karel Koskuba, Group demonstrations e.g. Tai Chi in the Park, and social evenings for peer group support and friendships.


We believe we are providing essential tools for life - a healthier body, a happier spirit, a chance to learn new skills and to adopt a calmer, more centred approach to life through renewed confidence in yourself.


Our principal tutors have been Eva and Karel Koskuba, to whom we owe a debt of gratitude for their continued support and professional development.


An essential aspect of student learning is the recognition of skills attained and progression, and the School is able to facilitate the learning of other forms of Tai Chi e.g. Chen style Single and Double Broadswords, Straight Sword, Chen Single and Double Fan, elements of Yiquan and Yang style.


The Swan School of Tai Chi and Qigong is experienced in delivering specialist courses or one off sessions within Education, Commerce or Medical arenas and we would wish to develop our client base.  The tutors are experienced practitioners, which enables them to design and deliver quality teaching sessions using different educational techniques to successfully focus on individual or group requirements.


Our instructors hold professional membership of the Chinese Internal Arts Association, the British Council for Chinese Martial Arts, and instructor level membership of the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain. We are all qualified, certified and insured with over 30 years of tai chi experience between us.


With the recent changes happening throughout Europe regarding data protection: Please be assured that Swan Tai Chi take your privacy very seriously, and would never sell or distribute your contact details to a third party. Your privacy, and care to keep your details confidential are a priority of Swan Tai Chi.
