T’ai Chi

A very gentle, evidence-based approach to reducing stress, lowering blood pressure and benefiting the entire cardiovascular system, T’ai Chi is also one of the most effective ways of improving balance and muscle strength for anyone at risk of falling. Through practising its slow, stylised, dance-like  movements, your concentration will improve and you will learn to live more in the moment.

It is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence as a useful part of any Falls Prevention programme.
