Volunteering Role: Tai Chi Instructor
Why did you want to volunteer with Age Cymru?
As soon as I saw the appeal on the Age Cymru facebook page for people to learn how to deliver Tai Chi sessions, I wanted to volunteer immediately. I had been worrying over how unfit I was and not able to do any kind of consistent fitness regime. I had enjoyed learning tai chi many years ago and I thought it was the ideal solution.
