Tai chi exercises are very helpful for keeping our bodies flexible, strong and supple. This is particularly helpful for those experiencing problems such as arthritis. So why not give it a try.
We run a tai chi class once a week with a fully qualified instructor, Jon Kay, who is a member of the Tai Chi Union GB. Read more about the benefits of tai chi.
Classes are on a come when you can basis, not as a specific course, since we recognise that people with arthritis cannot always guarantee attendance.
Whilst we do subsidise these classes, there is a charge of £5.00 (non-members £6.00) per session. Concessions are available.
Wednesday at 2.00 pm at Beansheaf Community Centre, Charrington Road, Calcot, Reading RG31 7AW. Classes are followed by complimentary tea and biscuits and a chance to catch up with friends.
What our Members say …
“After just a few months I can feel the difference in my balance and co-ordination, and my friends have commented how much better my walking is” JH
“When I go out of the door after tai chi, I feel so much better than when I arrived.” RF
“I’ve at last found something I can take away to do at home.” VJ
All change – the handover to our new tai chi tutor, Jon, went very smoothly.
An emotional afternoon as we say farewell to our long-time tai chi tutor, Pauline, with our thanks for all the wonderful memories. We wish her a very happy retirement.
