Tai chi developed as a martial art in 13th century China, but the forms we practice today have been modified with the aim of improving health and well-being. The physical movements are gentle, yet with patience and application will help practitioners to increase their strength and flexibility and improve balance. A body of research evidence shows that some forms of tai chi are particularly beneficial in improving conditions such as arthritis, with spin-offs such as preventing falls.
The tai chi group meets fortnightly on Tuesday afternoons from 3.15 to 4.15 at the Phoenix Centre on Winchcombe Street. The group has a full complement at present. However, I am happy to take names of people who have some prior experience of either tai chi or xi gong (the group has moved beyong the ‘beginners’ stage now), in case places should become available.
Fortnightly Tuesday 15:15
