TAI CHI, an introduction to this popular form of exercise
There is an opportunity to find out more about the popular activity of tai chi with an introduction session at Oakwell Hall in Birstall on Sunday, 24 March.
What is Tai Chi?
Tai Chi was originally developed as a martial art in 13th Century China but is now practised around the world as a health-promoting exercise suitable for all ages.
What happens in the session?
Oakwell’s two-hour session is being run by tai chi practitioner Les Hughes who will introduce participants to the philosophy of tai chi, some basic exercises and meditation before moving onto the 24-movement Yang style of tai chi.
How can I book?
