New Tai Chi Group

The waiting list for the Tai Chi group has grown to the point where we have decided to start a second group. Classes will be held at the Knutsford Sports Club from 3pm-4pm on Thursday afternoons – ahead of the current classes which are 4pm-5pm.

With our excellent tutor, we practise Qi Gong exercises. These include breathing and meditation exercises to help to reduce stress; and low-impact physical exercises using the muscles of the whole body to improve core strength, balance and flexibility.

Public Health England recently published a report “Muscle and bone strengthening and balance activities for general health benefits in adults and older adults” in which they say that strengthening and balance activities not only help prevent falls, but also help improve sleeping patterns and increase energy levels. One of the activities they recommend is Tai Chi.

We shan’t be meeting during the summer. Classes will begin again on Thursday 6 September. Meanwhile, if you are interested, please contact Evelyn Flett (01565 653048) or Yvonne Baker (01565 651204) for more information.
