Case quotes
“It's not just about exercise, It's about having fun, keeping fit, meeting up with friends and enjoying ourselves. I'm not as young as I used to be, but inside I'm still the same. I want to enjoy myself with people who are like me. Laughter is the best medicine"
Margaret(76)
 
"For me, Tai-Chi is the best form of exercise. I feel relaxed and focused after a session and feel that I can get on with my week ahead. I have seen a big difference in my balance and strength since I started the classes two years ago and I will continue to go along to the sessions for as long as I can"
