Project: Ageactivity 60+
An ancient Chinese exercise aimed at relaxing the body, calming the mind and lifting the spirit. Aids balance and coordination. Led by a friendly and experienced tutor who will tailor exercises to your ability where possible. No previous experience necessary.
"I have tried Tai Chi for short periods at various times over more than 20 years and I can honestly say that Shirley Ellis has been the best teacher I’ve ever had (and others have included well-regarded Chinese teachers). She is particularly clear and upbeat in her teaching and the classes are beneficial in promoting calm and well-being as well as exercise. I have learnt a lot more about the movements and my balance and flexibility have improved. Shirley picked up that I was having difficulty with my knee (which will soon be replaced) and gave me very good advice on how to look after it when doing Tai Chi - very personalised care".
