A Tai Chi class for older people in the Wakefield District.
Tai chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that has evolved over centuries to become a means of alleviating stress and anxiety, a form of "meditation in motion." Advocates claim that it promotes serenity and inner peace.
Tai chi is a noncompetitive martial art known for both its defense techniques and its health benefits. As an exercise, it comprises gentle physical exercise and stretching with mindfulness.
It has been shown to improve balance control, fitness, and flexibility, and to reduce the risk of falls in older people. It appears to reduce pain and the symptoms of depression.
Tai Chi is considered to be safe for people of all ages as it does not put too much stress on the muscles and joints.
Unfortunately we are unable to offer a Tai Chi class at the present time, but hope we will be doing something again soon
