Tai Chi

Our adapted Tai Chi is characterised by its slow, graceful, continuous movements that are gentle on the joints and muscles. It combines deep breathing and relaxation. With flowing movements and is often described as ‘meditation in motion’.

Originally developed in 13th century China, Tai Chi is now practised around the world as a health-promoting exercise. It is ideal for inactive people wanting to raise their activity levels gently and gradually.

Also, many of the Tai Chi movements can be adapted to people with a disability, including wheelchair users.
