Silver Tai Chi Beginners
Tai Chi is the Chinese art of systematic body movement designed to achieve physical, mental and spiritual harmony. This course will give you a step by step guide to achieving calm, fitness and balance and can also be practised for its health benefits including:
Improves posture, flexibility and balance.
Reduces stress and promotes mental wellbeing.
Lowers blood pressure.
Strengthens and tones muscles.
Increase energy levels.
Can help to control Type 2 diabetes.
Each class begins with meditation and moves on to a series of gentle exercises moving on to practice the form (routine) and end with breathing exercises. There are qualified assistant instructors who help with training.
If you want to try Tai Chi for the first time you will be given a very warm welcome.
|ARC’s Silver Programme is supported by a Cultural Volunteers scheme which helps participants to attend and participate in over 50s activity. For more information and to meet our current volunteers, please click here.|
