FOOTBALL: WALKING FOOTBALL
The Walking Football Group is a proposed new group. This could initially be a mixed group.
This is a friendly group, focusing on enjoyment as well as exercise. We play every Tuesday afternoon at the Kings Fitness and Leisure Centre in Cheddar, where we hire 3 tables and play mainly doubles - pairings of ladies, men and mixed. New members of any ability are welcome.
T'AI CHI AND QIGONG
T'ai Chi is a Chinese martial art consisting of slow flowing sequences of exercises. The ultimate purpose of T'ai Chi is to cultivate the qui or life energy within us to flow smoothly and powerfully throughout the body. Through regular practice harmony of the inner and outer self comes into being as we work on all levels; physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
Numerous studies have shown T'ai Chi improves muscular strength, flexibility, fitness, immunity, relieves pain, helps with clarity of mind and improves quality of life.
Qigong is a healing practice in which a move is repeated a number of times.
T'AI CHI ORIGINAL
T'ai Chi was originally an ancient Chinese martial art, and is now a gentle form of exercise to help maintain strength, flexibility and balance. The group follow Dr. Paul Lam’s "The 24 Forms", and is an excellent addition to anyone’s health and wellbeing routine.
