About this event

What is Tai Chi?

Tai chi is a martial art that is slowed down to an exercise that can be achieved by any age or ability. We all have energy in our bodies, tai chi is the practice of working with your own natural energy in the correct way, and as it flows freely through your body it can help with a number of benefits. It helps us to achieve that calm flowing (some even say floating feeling) which can then aid pain relief, improve mobility, reduce stress and depression as well as improvement to sleep, balance and posture.

Tai chi is also described as Meditation In Motion. Although Tai Chi is slow and gentle and doesn’t leave you breathless! It is working on muscle strength, flexibility and balance. We have partnered with Sandra from M.I.I. Tai Chi who has delivered tai chi sessions for The MS Society, LGOWIT, WRI Ladies Group, befriending services and also runs her own classes around the Caithness area.

What happens at the sessions?

Each move making up the Tai Chi Form,12 moves in total, will be demonstrated each week over 12 weeks for 10 mins each day at 10 am. At the end of the 12 weeks of practice, we will celebrate having learned and practised the moves that make up the complete form by bringing them together to attempt the full practice. This will be a one-off 1-hour session on Saturday 9th April at 10 am.

Please note it will be mostly standing.
