Tai Chi in Windmill Gardens
The weekly tai chi classes are every Saturday from 11.30am-12.30pm, led by experienced local tai chi instructor Anna-Marie Franklin.
The programme will include many varied practices from tai chi and qi gong to prepare the body, mind and breath for the practising of the tai chi yang style long form. Whilst gently stimulating and lubricating the joints, this practice enables the student to cultivate their awareness of efficient movement around a central axis, thereby minimising unnecessary load on the joints.
Students can expect to enhance strength and vitality, and acquire a quality of calm breath awareness.
Classes are open to all levels of ability – no previous experience necessary. All ages welcome. Loose, warm clothing and light footwear advisable.
We ask for a small donation to pay the teacher, payable on the day.
The class is held outdoors, where participants are able to spread out, but please do not attend if you have come in contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid in the last 6 days.
