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.

Sirens Surf

Traditionally surf schools have been male dominated and focused primarily on the needs of males. Many women of all ages have expressed that they wish to learn as single gender groups. Often there is less sense of embarrassment, or pressure of male dominance and this leads to a more relaxed and fun environment. The aim of Sirens Surf is to support women and girls to feel empowered and inspired by their own abilities. To be challenged by what the sea and what Cornwall has to offer in a safe supportive environment. There are small group sessions of a maximum of 8 females at a time to be able to give everyone the attention and time they need.
