Try Tai Chi for free

I'm delighted to offer a free Facebook Live taster class for anyone 65 or over - this Friday 14 August 3-4pm. Head on over to our Facebook page for more details. Whilst some in person activity starts to pick up again, I also know that many of us have got used to joining health and wellbeing classes - such as Tai Chi - via a computer, tablet or phone.

Maybe don't give up bad stuff - just yet?

Life can be harsh. There is certainly so much room for more kindness to each other - but I think we also need to start learning to be kind to ourselves.

Tai Chi for health and wellbeing

Tai Chi comes in many shapes and forms, schools and styles. It originally started, centuries ago, as a martial art in China. Some folklore suggests it was developed for sedentary monks who needed to exercise in their breaks from their very long meditations! For the last hundred or so years it has been practised solely for health purposes. Often called "moving meditation" Tai Chi is a collection of graceful, slow, flowing movements designed to support mental and physical health and well...
