Try Tai Chi - For Free

17 May 2017

If you’d like to boost your health and learn to relax and unwind from the stress of a busy day in a healthy way, West Craven Sports Centre in Barnoldswick is offering a free tai chi session on Thursday 1st June at 7.30pm to launch a new weekly session with Lighthouse Tai Chi.  

Instructors Helena and David have just started an Aqua Tai Chi session at the Pool on Friday mornings and have other classes in Colne, Nelson and Trawden. David says “we’re delighted to be able to offer an evening session Barnoldswick, so that local working people and carers can attend and benefit from tai chi. This gentle, mindful art is a great way to unwind at the end of a stressful day. Everyone is welcome to come along to try and the regular weekly class will be included in memberships of the centre and Pendle Leisure.”

The dynamic duo now have 19 weekly classes, attended by 300 people per week, across East Lancashire having started only 7 years ago with 2 sessions and 20 students. Helena says “there are also additional workshops for those who wish to develop their skills and our social outings are a chance to make friends and enjoy a fun day out. We have managed to create a welcoming ‘club’ feel to our sessions while reaching out into the community to offer tai chi at convenient locations.”
