  • Tai chi is an ancient Chinese movement practice that offers a number of health benefits. For seniors in particular, it can have significant benefits as it focuses on muscle control, stability, balance, and flexibility. The movements are also very gentle.
  • Qi Gong is very similar to Tai Chi which is why we offer this session as an alternative to Tai Chi, to accommodate for the popularity of the session at this venue.

Do not turn up to a session without registering beforehand – you will be turned away if there are too many people.

For those who need to borrow poles it is essential that you sign up to the sessions beforehand so instructors know how many sets of poles they will need, this will help avoid any disappointment.

Please turn up at least 20 minutes before the session so that everyone can catch up beforehand and enjoy a full session – especially those who need to be set up with poles. Nordic Walk instructors will not normally delay the session for latecomers.
