Balance Minder


Leanne Simpson Balance Minder Principal

Hi, I’m Leanne

Principal Trainer at Balance Minder, Registered Fitness Australian AusREP Exercise Professional and, most importantly, a mother (and now grandmother).

I’ve dedicated my life to teaching Tai Chi all over Australia. And now, during these unprecedented times, I want to make the calming benefits of Tai Chi accessible for all individuals in isolation due to COVID-19.

Through Balance Minder Membership, I’m offering you the opportunity to enjoy movement for calmness and connection. Best of all, all members of your household can join.

After just one session you’ll feel happier and more content within yourself, and your family will feel the benefits too.

Balance Minder Membership offers a modern and practical approach to Tai Chi to be completed in the home.

Join me in our virtual training hub and feel the benefits for yourself.

I love working with Leanne. She showed me how to gently exercise and improve my overall health. I would recommend Balance Minder membership to everyone.

Virtual LIVE Classes Time Out Tai Chi

The ultimate at home class.  You connect with your fellow members from the comfort and safety of your home.  Each class is 30 minutes each.  No more driving to and from the class venue.

Time Out Tai Chi classes can be done seated or standing depending where you are on the day.  Sometimes we all need to exercise seated as this helps with the relaxation and calmness when we are feeling unbalanced.

We also have Family Time Out Tai Chi where things are focused on our younger members, so there are fun songs and games to go along with the tai chi.  Many members join in even if they are just young at heart.  These are great classes for parents as the kids can run around, do their own thing, and join in when they want without any interruption to the group.

BIG BONUS: we only require one paid membership per household (the rest of the family will need to complete a pre-exercise screening form before participating.

What’s included?

  • Classes through our virtual hub (up to 5 per week)
  • Rewatch & Relearn (recording of classes)
  • Community

Connect – have fun – smile and exercise!
