Tai Chi Classes

Put this date in your diary!

Tai Chi classes are starting in the Village Hall at 10.00 am on Wednesday 9th January .  The Hall will be open from about 9.45.  To start with there will be a trial period of 10 weeks, and then, if everyone is happy, classes will continue.

The following is a message from the instructor, Katie Wright:

The class will be along these lines: It will start with a mild warm up and then we will go on to practice a Qigong set (we will do a number of different sets). There will then be a short break for people to have a drink and then we go on to learn a Tai chi form.  We will start with the Yang Style 6 form which gives the basics of Yang style Tai Chi while being short enough to learn easily.  After the 10 weeks, if the class continues, we will go on to learn longer forms.
People need to wear loose clothing and either socks or light shoes on their feet.  I always say that people just do what they are able to do and any movements that cause pains or discomforts can be altered or left out.
Students will pay at the beginning of every class (£4 each) but I will offer a discount  if people want to pay for the whole 10 weeks - £36 for the course, but there will be no refunds for missed classes.

Everyone is welcome.  Come and join in a village activity!
