Whitton sessions

Please note – currently all sessions need to be booked the week before, due to numbers and availability of venues. Each session has its own Typeform (open Tuesdays 11am- Thursday 12pm), please put in your request and you will get emailed back by one of our project managers to let you know if you have a place for the following week.

If you have any questions about Whitton sessions please contact Project Manager Clare [email protected]

If you have never attended a Silverfit session before, or your health has changed in any way in the last year, please fill in a PAR-Q - Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire - so that we are aware of any health and medical issues you may have before taking part in our sessions. You need to print this out and bring it along to the session to give to the instructor.

Whilst our Whitton sessions are currently free to attend, we welcome any donations towards the running costs of these sessions via Just Giving here: justgiving.com/campaign/WhittonSilverfit

PHOTOGRAPHY: Please note, sessions are often photographed for marketing purposes. If you attend a session and do not wish to be photographed please let the photographer, Project Manager or instructor know.

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.
