Tai Chi for Health on Fridays
We are pleased to announce there will be a new tai chi class starting at Brabourne & Smeeth Village Hall on Friday mornings, from 22nd September. We’ll be taking you through simple tai chi moves that are long, graceful and easy to practice at home. By it’s very nature, tai chi is very repetitive so don’t worry if you miss a class or can’t come one week as there is plenty of time to practice and keep going over the moves. It’s easy to pick up and taught in such a way that everyone can follow the teacher.
This session is perfect for beginners, those with mobility issues or even folk who need to sit down in a chair.
The flowing movements of tai chi contain much inner strength, like water flowing in a river, beneath the tranquil surface there is a current with immense power—the power for healing and wellness. Numerous studies have shown tai chi improves muscular strength, flexibility, fitness, improve immunity, relieve pain and improve quality of life. Muscle strength is important for supporting and protecting joints and is essential for normal physical function. Flexibility exercises enable people to move more easily, and facilitate circulation of body fluid and blood, which enhance healing.
