New participants in free tai chi sessions
As part of the Mayor of London’s National Park City Festival that took place from 20 to 28 July, the Friends of Windmill Gardens offered four free tai chi sessions in the park.
A total of 42 different people took part – 13 male, 29 female, 10 over 65 years and 8 under 25 (including 7 children). More than half (52%) had not participated in any Windmill Gardens tai chi sessions previously.
All sessions took place in the open air and in the peace and greenery of the park. Two of the sessions were threatened by bad weather heavy rain storms but none of them was cancelled, although parts of a couple of sessions retreated into the Stay & Play building.
