Summer Festival: Tai Chi for Beginners Plus
Join us for our Summer Festival classes to keep you learning. We didn’t want to leave you bored over the summer and yearning for your learning, so we’ve decided to hold a Summer Festival where you can continue your favourite class with your favourite tutor or even try something new!

Improve your health and wellbeing with this Chinese Exercise System. Tai Chi is known as "meditation in movement" and is practised in a slow sequence of movements (known as "form"). Regular training can bring physical health benefits that include: improved balance, body structure and flexibility, fitness, stamina, and general health and wellbeing. Tai Chi makes you feel more positive and happier so you will also learn how to reduce stress. By the end of the course you will be able to perform the short hand form and various Qigong exercises. For more information on Tai Chi please look at the tutor's website: www.uktaichi.com.

Although there is a lot of standing in Tai Chi, it is an ideal form of exercise for those who wish to improve overall fitness. Prosp User 4
