Our June meeting was an introduction to Tai Chi by Owen Jenkins, who is a Tai Chi teacher and acupuncturist. Tai Chi is based on marshal arts and it originated in China nearly 5000 years ago. Owen teaches Tai Chi for arthritis, which was developed by medical and Tai Chi experts to suit people of all ages. It has been demonstrated to help improve pain, stiffness, muscle strength, balance and flexibility. Owen demonstrated 41 slow, flowing movements and invited us to have a go. After a gently warm up, we practiced the first 2 movements. We still have a lot to learn, but we left feeling more nimble and relaxed!
