I would highly recommend Lyn as a teacher of Tai Chi.
She explains things slowly and goes through each section so we can easily understand.
If there is anything that we do not understand then she will repeat until we are happy. Her patience is very good and nothing is too much trouble.
It is also at a pace that every level of student can follow and she has a good way of teaching that encourages all of her students. That's why we keep coming back to improve our standards.
Mrs M Vaissiere. ATHERTON TAI CHI
I really look forward to my weekly Tai Chi class.
Lyn is a thorough and patient teacher, happy to revise areas we need to practise and encouraging us with helpful feedback.
Since I completed the Diabetes programme I have practised it daily, alongside the current programme. (I have Type 2 Diabetes.) I have had a marvellous improvement with my cholesterol recently which I can only credit to the Diabetes programme, as this is the only change I have made since my last health check. The people in our group support and encourage each other, which creates a warm and friendly atmosphere. As Lyn often says, "It's not a competition." It's all about health.Gwynneth, ASPULL TAI CHI
Hi Lyn, really enjoying the Monday tai chi in Horwich. I'm sure my balance is better when dressing on one leg. I think the breathing is a great calming tool too. Looking forward to many more classes.Joyce Horwich Tai Chi
Since joining Lyn’s warm and friendly seated classes 12 months ago, I have found it to be most beneficial. I have lived with M.S. for 40 years and found the seated Tai Chi has strengthened my upper body muscles as well as strengthening my core; the controlled breathing techniques have helped lower my blood pressure as well. It also helps to correct my posture with the damaged caused by my M.S. and the inevitable aging process. Many thanks Lyn,

One of my hobbies is walking in the countryside but my enjoyment was being spoilt by knee pain. However, since I started Tai Chi this has improved considerably and I can enjoy it once again.John Harrison. ATHERTON TAI CHI`
Seat tai chi exercise class really enjoy coming to the class with lyn and find her instructions clear the movements beneficial and the music so relaxing.
Thanks from lois, lorraine and joyce WESTHOUGHTON SEATED TAI CHI
It is a pleasure to attend the classes, they are informal, health promoting, friendly, relaxing, it is a peaceful part of Thursday with calming music. The movements are easily developed and can be used each day at home. Lyn is an excellent, patient teacher, who is clearly passionate about the whole area of positive health promotion. The class is a mix of people of all ages and styles, I would recommend enrolment to all. Sue Bromley PRESTOLEE TAI CHI
Hello Lyn Thank you for your update. Can’t believe it is that time of year again. I just want to say that your classes are great not only to meet others but the actual exercises are well thought out for the ‘older’ limbs and mind. The beauty of it is that I don’t feel under pressure to do the activities I know don’t suit my body. However I think you send out a positive message when you tell us to pace ourselves but there is a hidden message I think, that it is worth giving it a try. I know that I feel the benefits after the exercise. Look forward to restarting in January 2016.I would like to know how you keep so positive! Imelda ATHERTON DANCERCISE
Following our chat on Tuesday, although I don't want to go on too much about my back I do
have trapped nerves in the base of my spine which affect me from my lower back to my ankles in both legs (like having permanent cramp). Normally relieved by pain-killers (which I am reluctant
to take on a regular basis.) However, I do floor exercises every morning, followed by a session of Tai Chi. I have recently extended my Tai Chi session which I am sure is helping to
relieve my pain, as I definitely have less pain and walking better after the session.
I do seem to be having more problems with my balance but am taking your advice and adjusting some of the moves to suit my body.
Thank you for all you do to make the lessons interesting and informative. Maureen ATHERTON TAI CHI
I have been attending the Tai Chi sessions at Prestolee for nearly 2 years. The group is extremely friendly and I look forward to meeting up with everyone each week. I find the programmes very relaxing to do and Linda explains and demonstrates the moves extremely well, always happy to repeat anything that people are unsure about. For a number of years I have suffered with an arthritic knee and have found that since taking part in Tai Chi any discomfort has been reduced. I would certainly recommend these sessions.S.F. PRESTOLEE TAI CHI
Although so far I have only attended 3 Tai Chi classes I have really enjoyed them. I have found your instruction very clear and the fact that you go over it so many times during the lesson helps me to remember the steps. The atmosphere in the classes is one of fun which it is all about! It all seems a bit of a blur at the moment but with your precise teaching I aim to be as good as you one day. I look forward to the next session. Sandra Shadbolt. ASPULL TAI CHI
If you like dancing, good music and great exercise routines then you will LOVE lyn’s Dancercise classes – a great way to keep fit and have FUN. Eileen APSULL DANCERCISE
Leave your worries and stress at home when you do Tai Chi with Lyn. Focus on what you need to do with your legs and arms and your cares won’t get a look in! An hour at Tai Chi is great for your body AND your mind. Shelagh P. WESTHOUGTHON TAI CHI
Hi linda. Just to let you know that I am doing my tia chi every day here in Tenerife, getting some strange looks from passers by but hey who cares. We wish all your students a wonderful Christmas and a happy peaceful New Year. See you all in 2016. DOREEN HIGSON PRESTOLEE TAI CHI
Thank you Lyn for making my Tai chi sessions such a pleasure as I enjoy attending both the seated and standing classes. At last I feel that I am making progress and great at remembering the moves, although perhaps not in the right order as I try very hard not to look at you or the other people in the room while performing the routine, and I really love this Osteoporosis program. In my opinion you are very patient and an excellent teacher and thank you for your support over the years.

Lyn, I would like to express my admiration to you as a Tai Chi teacher. I am in my early seventies and have never been a particularly strong, even as a child. I was diagnosed with M.E. in my early sixties and maybe this has contributed to my lack of strength and energy. Coming to your seated class has changed my life by giving me increased muscle and body strength; thus making my everyday life easier. Thank you `

SATURDAY WORKSHOP 2015 TAI CHI – THE 24 FORMS
Thanks Lyn for a great day ! I never thought we'd get through the 24 Forms - but we did and however imperfectly I did, I'm so proud that I managed it !
Thanks Janine ASPULL TAI CHI
We ought to be thanking you for a very enjoyable day. I think we all did very well but could not manage without our leader! Looking forward to seeing the video and having a laugh.Mary WESTHOUGHTON TAI CHI
Dear Lyn, Thanks for your congratulations and comments, I really enjoyed the day. You put a lot into it yourself so well done to you. Love Joan. ATHERTON TAI CHI
Thank you for being such a patient teacher. I enjoyed it very much. Bottoms up (not literally!)
Gwynneth ASPULL TAI CHI
Although i did not continue to the end i enjoyed the morning as I would love to have continued with the class to
practice the whole form. I did better than i expected considering my back problems. Its always good to learn more and to push our comfort zones.As i will be away from class for 6 months i hope to
practice the 24 form. I have a good incentive as the weather is warm and my daughter has a house now rather than an apartment. With a lovely garden so no excuse to not practice. I will miss the
weekly sessions as we always need to remember and improve each week.
I think you give us all the enthusiasm to do well and not give up, that’s why we turn up each week. That proves you are a good and patient teacher.
Thanks Margaret. ATHERTON TAI CHI
Thank you for Saturday. I was a bit rusty, so hope it did not spoil the video. Great to see you, Steve and Bev. It was a good group and fabulous day. Back to Portugal now but will keep in touch.
Best wishes Jean (Sharman) ASPULL TAI CHI
Thank YOU very much. I've wanted to learn the 24 Form properly for ages. I had a practise when I got home and with a slight couch move I have room. Thanks to your husband too giving his day up to provide much needed support mmmm biscuits.
I'm looking forward to the refresher sessions just to check I'm doing it correctly.
Many thanks again Bev. ASPULL TAI CHI
Lyn is an excellent teacher being clear in her instructions and demonstration of Tai Chi (a little at a time) which makes it extremely easy to follow. Lyn has a lovely sense of humour which puts everyone at their ease. It is great to have fun sessions whilst knowing that they are beneficial to health. Sheila Carter ATHERTON TAI CHI

"This was carried out professionally in every way. I felt comfortable and calm and the gentle massage was very soothing. It relaxed me enormously and afterwards I had a great sense of wellbeing. I can confidently recommend this beneficial treatment."
I have enjoyed the Tai chi classes this year. The lessons are excellent and I know I am among friends. Thank you for your teaching and support this year. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a good New Year. I will endeavour to bring cake to the first class in 2017!
Thankyou Lyn xx TRACEY A
I attend the Horwich Tai Chi class. I am 67, walk with the help of crutches and have severe spinal problems for which I am awaiting an operation in the new year. I have been learning Tai Chi for one year now with Lyn and I can honestly say it has helped me with my balance and pain control. Lyn is a lovely lady, very patient and humorous and learning with her has been a pleasure. Whilst the next sessions in January have been labelled "diabetes" you do not have this illness as all the Tai Chi lessons for health are just that and suitable for anyone. - PAM L - HORWICH CLASS
Huge congratulations on your nomination for the Inspire Women Awards - richly deserved!
Carole - Westhoughton Tai chi
Lyn Many congratulations on being nominated - justly deserved, and I love following you with your tai chi moves.
Wednesday would not be the same without your Tai Chi class. We really do feel the benefit of the class and I am sure it is helping my osteoporosis.
