Why not try Tai Chi for some gentle exercise? Classes are held in Hawkchurch Village Hall on a Monday from 2pm – 3pm.
Tai Chi combines deep breathing and relaxation with flowing movements. Tai chi is characterised by its slow, graceful, continuous movements that are gentle on the joints and muscles.
Originally developed as a martial art in 13th-century China, tai chi is now practised around the world as a health-promoting exercise.
Studies have shown that it can help people aged 65 and over to reduce stress, improve posture, balance and general mobility, and increase muscle strength in the legs.
Tai chi is commonly performed as a low-impact exercise, which means it won’t put much pressure on your bones and joints. Most people should be able to do it.
