|The University of the Third Age|
Although the Lee style is derived from the martial art our focus will be on the health art. Our Tai Chi is not competitive but is performed to each individual's personal ability, creating a relaxed atmosphere of enjoyable learning. Sessions will include Kai Men exercises, often referred to as Chinese moving meditation, Dou Yin, respiration therapy breathing exercises and of course learning the Lea style 50 move short form, the movements which most people think of as Tai Chi.
Regular Tai Chi practice can improve posture, balance and co-ordination for all age groups.
The Group Leader first started the practice of Lee style Tai Chi in 1998 and is a trained Instructor. He hopes this group will give members as much enjoyment from their Tai Chi as he has experienced over the years.
Clothing for Tai Chi should be loose and comfortable, such as a tee shirt and jogging/tracksuit bottoms. Footwear should be light, flexible and flat.
Unfortunately, neither group can accept any additional people at the present time.
