Seahorse Arts

They provide training in the Taoist Arts of the Lee style - one of the oldest forms of Taoist training which was brought to the west in the 1930's and it still embodies the traditional Taoist methods from before the modern era in China. The style has maintained its independence from western philosophy and materialism and has not been mixed with techniques from elsewhere. The main emphasis in Lee style T'ai Chi is on relaxation and health and it is based on Taoist philosophy. Evening classes and weekend courses.
