Update from Group Leader, 4th July 2021
"I'm hoping to start the U3A Tai Chi group in September all being well. Currently, Berwick Tai Chi is running sessions at the hall for members and non members on Tuesdays and Thursdays."
Covid-19: a message from the Group Leader, late April 2021
"As lockdown recedes Tai Chi is waking up! We've started non-u3a sessions on The Stanks football field, Thursday mornings, open to all but limited to 6 per session (3 sessions per morning). Hopefully, by June 2021, the Berwick u3a Tai Chi group may be able to meet at St Aidan's Hall again, but we will have to wait and see what Covid restrictions and the National u3a advice allows. If you would like more information about the outdoor sessions contact The Treasurer via the Berwick u3a website's Contacts page."
The following is historic, & is provided for info only just now:
(The following information applies to Groups Tai Chi 1, 2 & Seated)
The slow-motion movements of Tai Chi provide improved physical movement, calm and release stress from the nerves and mind. We study a modified form Tai Chi Yang style with emphasis on the health benefits. For those with less mobility we also offer a Seated Tai Chi session to allow all to improve their health and fitness, without the fall risk. But the most important thing to us, is that you enjoy your session of Tai Chi, whichever one you do.
All sessions are held at St Aidan's Hall, Church Street.
Tuesday 9:30 - 10:30 For beginners and the more experienced who wish to brush up on early skills.
Thursday 9:30 - 10:00 For beginners and the more experienced who wish to brush up on early skills.
Thursday 10:05 - 11:05 For intermediate and beginners who wish to learn more.
Thursday 11:15 - 12:15 For intermediate but all welcome
Thursday 14:00 - 15:00 Seated Tai Chi for those with less nimble legs
If you feel undecided about Tai Chi, why not try a taster session with no commitment to continue.
