For those unfamiliar with the concept of Tai Chi, it is based on the healing, meditative and ancient martial arts of China. Each of the seemingly gentle movements has a practical application. We practice the Yang family style of Tai Chi in which the emphasis is on slow, soft, controlled movements. Tai Chi may be practiced by people of all ages and abilities, and is said to bring health benefits, including posture, and help with balance and circulation. It also brings a sense of relaxation and inner peace.
We now run 4 sessions on Tuesdays; Beginners at 1.00 pm, Improvers at 11.00 am, Intermediate at 2.00 pm, and Advanced at 12.00 noon.
Because of the progressive nature of learning the Tai Chi forms it is difficult, but not necessarily impossible, to include new beginners mid-term. We, therefore, operate a waiting list, on a first come first served basis, and as soon as an opportunity arises you would be notified. However, if you have any previous experience of Tai Chi, our ever-patient teacher, Lesley, would be pleased to see you and we could help and advise you which group would best suit you and if there is a vacancy.
We expect to be at the Activities Day and would be pleased to see you and hopefully answer any questions you may have.
Usual activity day: Tuesday
