Face-to-face events are currently suspended due to the Covid-19 measures.
Tai Chi is a gentle but powerful form of flowing movement that may help in improving balance, spinal alignment and posture, physical strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness. By combining the slow movement with the breath many people find it beneficial in reducing stress and anxiety. Tai Chi can be done seated or standing or a combination of both depending on participants’ requirements.
While the regular on-site branch activities are suspended, our Tai Chi, Chi Kung and Meditation Teacher, Kevin Brown, is running his weekly classes online via Zoom. To join these sessions which are Tuesdays, 11am – 12noon, and are free, please contact Kevin via 01506 845 498 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
As the Branch is supporting facilitators’ online work, you may consider making a donation to the Branch via our JustGiving page but please do not add Gift Aid as the Branch is not allowed to claim it where a service has been provided in relation to a donation. It would also help our Treasurer if you identified the activity e.g. Tai Chi.
