Tai Chi Movement for Wellbeing 8 Week Class – Fridays
Mar 3 @ 10:00 am – 1:30 pm

This free training is for either people aged 50+ and/or those who are living with a long term health condition.
Tai Chi Movement for Wellbeing (TMW) is a specially-developed sequence of movements and gentle exercise for promoting physical and emotional wellbeing that has been shown to benefit many people, particularly over 50s and those with long-term health conditions.
There is a large body of research demonstrating that the regular practice of tai chi improves levels of flexibility, mobility, balance and general well-being across all age groups, with significant improvements for older people.
The advantage of TMW as compared to other forms tai chi, is that it is a simple, easily learnt sequence that can be practiced by almost anyone including those with long-term health conditions, limited mobility or low stamina.
The sequence of movements is gentle and participants are encouraged to find their own “soft-limit”, so that they do not over-exert or strain. TMW is taught over 8 weeks, in hour long sessions, by a qualified TMW Trainer with over 30 years’ experience.  Participants are encouraged to practice at home and each person is given a DVD and handouts.  Gradually, over the 8 weeks of the course, participants find that this gentle form of exercise helps with reducing stiffness and fatigue, whilst building stamina, flexibility, confidence and well-being.
The dates for this 8 Week Class are as follows:
The Environment Centre, Pier Street, SA1 1RY
10 – 11am, Fridays 13th, 20th, 27th January, 3rd, 10th, 17th 24th February, 3rd March 2017
