Tai Chi,
Norfolk, West Norfolk, North Norfolk, Kings Lynn, Heacham, Hunstanton, Downham Market, Fakenham.

Tai Chi is an exercise activity, that when practiced daily, has many health and wellbeing benefits. ​Although Tai Chi has its origins as a martial art, it is now most popular purely for the health, fitness and wellbeing benefits. It began as a cultural activity in China and spread throughout the world. It consists of dynamic, fluid, relaxed, graceful movements and postures. I have been practicing Tai Chi for over 30 years and teaching for over 15 years. Tai Chi is suitable for all age groups, and you can join in with my classes. Glenn
