These popular sessions have started again and will run throughout 2018 under the instruction of our new instructor Pauline Allen.

Pauline, who lives locally and has classes in Caversham and Reading, has been teaching Tai Chi for the past 20 years and has a background in dance and physiology.

 Using Tai Chi and Qigong principles everyone can maintain health, fitness and a sense of wellbeing. This will be a core aspect of the Purley on Thames class using the Yang style Beijing Form.

The classes are held in the large Barn every Wednesday afternoon; you are advised to arrive soon after 1.15pm with the class starting at 1.30pm lasting for one hour. There is then an opportunity for social interaction and tea until 3pm.

The cost of each session is £6 which is payable on the day and we look forward to greeting new members. Please note it is best to wear loose clothing and soft soled footwear and have a regular drink of water during practice.

Tai Chi is supported by Silver Surfers Inspire 4 Life and Purley on Thames Parish Council.
