Tai Chi

T’ai Chi involves slow, gentle movements that help focus and balance the mind and body, in fact it is great for relaxation.

The classes are held locally, in the Clydebank area and are dependant on the availability of suitable and affordable premises. They are run in blocks of ten sessions.

This class is facilitated by Chris Godwin.

This is what members say about the class!

“Markedly, I learned relaxation techniques as a result, I found it very helpful for my anxiety. I really enjoy this class because it’s an hour I don’t normally get to focus on myself and I appreciate it greatly.”

“I sleep better after the class, coupled with better relaxation not to mention enjoying the company of others.”

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

“Ta’i Chi relieves pain in joints. I look forward to the group, it’s a great opportunity to switch off. I now realise, when tired, it is often due to stress. The group has changed my thinking and specifically has helped me address the problem. I am more active and in addition more positive and see things in a different light.”
