Tai Chi sessions for all abilities

We are continuing to follow sensible procedures in order to minimise the risks to participants and the instructor from coronavirus.  The first Tai Chi class starts promptly at 10.30am with a ten minute break between the two 55-minute sessions.

Instructor Dominic says "What you think you're doing and what you're doing should be the same.  Every move should be easy, we're aiming for good posture and a comfortable spine."

The class is run so that everyone can join in.  Dominic encourages participants to "be gentle with yourself. Try to do each exercise the best you can. Well is better than more."  Join us for this low-intensity physical activity that is especially beneficial to older people.
