Tai Chi Group
Tai Chi originated in China five hundred years ago as a technique of self defence but also drawing on the long standing health practices of Qi Gong. Modern Tai Chi provides us with gentle exercises, good for our well-being, balance, posture, suppleness and ability to relax. Our group has been going for the best part of twenty years under the leadership of Jim Butterfield. Our usual routine consists of a sequence of Qi Gong and other exercises followed by work on one of the Tai Chi forms.
Due to its popularity, and the need for a second skilled leader, we currently have a waiting list, but during the summer months we meet in Riverside Gardens. With no space limitations, all U3A members are welcome, free of charge.
Watch three short videos below, two showing warm up sessions and one showing the group practicing a Tai Chi Form.
