Potters Bar

Tai Chi

Group Leader: David Patterson (Contact details in Newsletter)

The group meets on a Monday morning between 11.00 and 12.00 ( except when the monthly Potters Bar U3A monthly meetings are held ).

Tai Chi is founded on a martial arts discipline devised in China in the 18th century.

Tai Chi consists of a number of forms: the Short Form, the Long Form and two using imitation swords. Each form consists of a sequence of movements performed slowly and to music. They are aimed at improving student’s posture, balance, breathing and core strength and aiding composure. Some have suggested that it is akin to dance so it is enjoyable and relaxing.

New members are welcome and more experienced members will help new ones to learn the moves.

Venue: Elm Court, Mutton Lane, Potters Bar.
