Older Adults Activities

Tai chi combines deep breathing and relaxation with slow and gentle movements.
It can help to reduce stress, improve balance and general mobility and increase muscle strength in the legs. It is low-impact which means it won’t put much pressure on your bones and joints.

Each course is aimed at beginners.
