  • 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.

  • Slow, deep, abdominal breathing is encouraged, and the breath is coordinated with the movements of the exercise.

  • Each class consists of a short warm-up routine, followed by a demonstration and tuition of the Form (a sequence of 37 postures) and exercises, concluding with a cool down routine, leaving you in a state of physical and mental well-being.

  • Comfortable loose clothing should be worn, and flat shoes or trainers are recommended.
