Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese health exercise where the mind, the breath and the body work in unison.  This leads to a state of relaxation.  It is particularly suitable for older people as the movements are soft and slow.

Its health benefits are varied - reduction of stress, blood pressure and heart rate, increased flexibility and mobility in the joints, and improved balance, concentration, coordination and strength in the legs.

Lots of OiR members have been coming along to the Tai Chi groups and have obviously been spreading the word about the health benefits and how much they enjoy it.  As a result of this, our groups are usually well filled.  However, we believe that we should try our best to accommodate, in some way, any members who wish to join.

Whenever we get several people on the waiting list, we run a taster class. This has proved to be extremely successful and is something we will repeat, if required.  (See the Tai Chi Taster page for more information.) 

However,  if numbers allow, we can also try and fit you straight into the Beginners class.

If you want to find out more, or put your name on the waiting list, please contact Betty on the number above.
