Join our Tai Chi class

We are pleased to say our Tai Chi classes are back on a Thursday and are as popular as ever! 

Tai Chi is a gentle exercise that brings together deep breathing, relaxation and slow, graceful movements. As it is greatly based on technique, it does not require strength or flexibility. Our class is adapted so you can do it seated or standing.

The classes are led by Jackie in person at the Centre and start at 1pm on a Thursday. If it is your first class, we recommend you call first to confirm or book by clicking here. Classes are provided free of charge but we warmly welcome donations which will allow the Centre to provide treatments and support. 

The MS Trust website says:

‘Although there has been little research done on the effects of Tai Chi in MS, the physical and psychological effects of Tai Chi have been examined extensively in both older people and those with chronic conditions. Previous research has shown that Tai Chi has a medical benefit for those with chronic health problems, including multiple sclerosis. Long-term Tai Chi practice was found to have favourable effects on the promotion of balance control, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness and reduced the risk of falls in older people. It was also found to reduce painstress and anxiety.’ (Find out more here: https://mstrust.org.uk/research/research-updates/update140826-tai-chi-benefit)
