Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese health exercise where the mind, the breath and the body work in unison.  This leads to a state of relaxation.  It is particularly suitable for older people as the movements are soft and slow.

Its health benefits are varied – reduction of stress, blood pressure and heart rate, increased flexibility and mobility in the joints, and improved balance, concentration, coordination and strength in the legs.

Lots of OiR members have been coming along to the Tai Chi groups and have obviously been spreading the word about the health benefits and how much they enjoy it.  As a result of this, our groups are usually well filled.  However, we believe that we should try our best to accommodate, in some way, any members who wish to join.
