T'ai Chi



"It definitely helps me slow down and clear my thoughts. Generally, it has aided my mobility."

We have two Tai Chi Groups led by Andreas Demetriou at the centre which meet on Fridays

Seated Tai Chi with Chi Kung breathing exercises for beginners at 11.15am - 12.15pm

Tai Chi for all levels at 12.30pm - 1.30pm

Tai Chi (or T'ai chi ch'üan) is an ancient Chinese art of movement practised for self-discipline, general well-being and maintenance of health for the body, mind and spirit. Andreas practises the Yang style and the Classic Yang style and his classes are suitable for for beginner and experienced levels.

You can see a video here that we made with Andreas during lockdown.


Although this group is part of our older people's programme, we welcome people of all ages.

We ask for a contribution of £3 for people 65 and over and £4 for all other participants.

Please speak to us if you are not able to meet these costs, or if you are coming to three or more sessions a week.

In Spring and Summer, when the weather is good, the 12.30pm group meets outdoors in Lettsom Gardens.
