An introduction to Tai Chi in an outdoor setting

Tai Chi is a moving meditation that incorporates several elements within the practice.

Health – Helping to improve the immune system.
Fitness – It acts aerobically on the heart and lungs in a low impact way to build strength.
Cultivation of Chi – It teaches efficiency of movement and turns effort into ease.
Meditation – teaching the player to meditate even while moving and interacting with the world around us.
Martial arts – The movements all have many applications which can be applied to the martial arts. The martial aspect, in the early stages, is used to inform the structure of the postures and explain the body mechanics behind each move. Don’t get me wrong it can be highly effective when performed by an accomplished practitioner, however, if you’re looking for a beginner’s self-defence class then there are better systems you should start with.

In these 4 week outdoor courses we will be covering the basics of Tai Chi Movement, learning some of the postures and the body mechanics behind them.  The Class will give you a taste of what Tai Chi is, the basic stance and shifting weight, how it can be of benefit to all aspects of life and inspire you to take the next steps to learning more.

Please meet at the Visitor Centre 5mins before the start time of the activity. Booking essential.
Please note: all participants will be required to complete a short health questionnaire before they take part in their first activity.
Free parking is provided for this activity.
