New series of Tai Chi classes coming

A new series of Tai Chi classes will be starting in the Parish Centre on 10 May, this time including ‘Gentle Tai Chi’ for people with arthritis, back pain and other conditions, writes Brian Byrne.

The Wednesday morning classes are run by Yuki Kobayashi, and those for beginners and improvers will start at 10am, while the Gentle Tai Chi classes will be from 11.30am.

Tai Chi is based on a martial art ‘in slow motion’, and provides a range of benefits to practitioners, including better posture and mobility, a relaxed body and mind, and more energy and concentration.

The fees are €50 for six lessons, or €10 a class through the series.
