Tai Chi

T’ai Chi involves slow, gentle movements that help focus and balance the mind and body. It is great for relaxation. These classes are held in the Dalmuir Community Education Centre and run on Wednesdays from 6pm – 7pm. These classes run in blocks of ten sessions.

This class is facilitated by Chris Godwin.

This is what members say about the class!

“Great relaxation techniques, very helpful for my anxiety. Really enjoying this class. It’s an hour I don’t normally get to focus on myself and I appreciate it greatly.”

“Sleep better after class. Find it relaxing and enjoy the company of others at the group.”

“This group facilitates a healthier lifestyle, a better feeling of wellbeing.”

“I find it relives pain in joints. I look forward to the group, it’s a great opportunity to switch off. I now realise when I feel tired. It is often due to stress, this group has changed my thinking, helping me address the problem and be more active, more positive, therefore see things in a different light, more confident.”
