Tai Chi in the great outdoors

Erewash residents have the power to tap in to the health benefits of Tai Chi when weekly hour-long sessions start again in the relaxing surrounding of Victoria Park in Ilkeston every Tuesday from 6 June.

The free sessions are run by Tai Chi experts and will take place throughout the summer between 10.30am and 11.30am and are suitable for all ages and abilities. No booking is required, just meet at the pavilion within the park or find the group out on the grass.

The free classes previously ran through the autumn and were well attended and are now returning as part of a ‘summer of wellbeing’ in the park. The known health benefits of the ancient Chinese low impact exercise include reducing stress, improved posture, balance and general mobility and increased muscle strength in legs. It is suitable for most people and can be adapted to suit those with a disability, including wheelchair users.
