tai chi courses and activities

Try Tai Chi at Food for Thought

Weekly on a Thursday evening
Starting on Thursday 8th of March – Thursday 26th April

T’ai Chi Chuan (Taiji quan) is an ancient Chinese martial art which is practised
throughout the world. In recent times it has become less known for its martial
prowess and more as a gentle exercise for promoting good physical and
mental health.

Our instructor, Craig Swinnerton, is a Senior Instructor with Zhong Dao, an
Advanced Instructor with the T’ai Chi Union for Great Britain (TCUGB) and an
authorised Instructor with British Council for Chinese Martial Arts (BCCMA).

The course will run for 8 weeks from the 1st March, on Thursdays at 7pm and is
designed to introduce you to the basics of Tai Chi and promote wellbeing.
The course is free of charge for 8 weeks*

(*After 8 weeks the class may continue (depending on demand) on a fee paying basis – or
you may wish to join one of Craig’s classes throughout the area.)
