Tai Chi Advanced

Taoist Tai Chi Leader/Coordinator:Norman R

Aims and Objectives of the group:
Tai Chi improves health, relaxation and serenity through its warm-up exercises and set of moves. The aim is to give practitioners a set of exercises that can be performed by individuals almost anywhere at any time. The ultimate aim is to have the whole class proficient in Taoist Tai Chi with the hope that it will be practised regularly so that everyone gets the health benefits from it.

Any expertise needed:
None. All members receive instruction from absolute beginners to those with years of experience.

Equipment needed (rough costs if any):
None. However, members do need soft-soled shoes (eg trainers) and loose fitting tops and slacks (eg jogging suits)

Maximum number permitted in the group:
20, governed mainly by size of venue and my ability to give proper instruction coverage.

Location, day and time of meetings:
St Fremunds Church Hall in Westfield Road. Every Tuesday 10am to 11.30am, except public holiday periods and a summer break; approx mid-June to early/mid September, agreed by consensus. The class runs for 10 weeks per session.

A brief description of a typical meeting:
The class starts with everyone spending 3-4 minutes on breathing exercises. Occasionally the class then performs a number of warm-up exercises. Once members know these exercises, they are requested to practise them at home in between classes. Well practised members then go on to work through the Tai Chi set of moves, while I instruct new members in a few moves per week. After a coffee break I pick out one or more moves in which I believe the class
needs correction and demonstrate.
