Tai Chi at Shuttleworth

19 August, 3 & 17 September

(WELLBEING WORKSHOP) See dates below


Tai Chi is recognised as a wonderful soft exercise and calming meditative movement. These exercises connect with traditional Chinese ideas about the natural development of Chi, leading to a quietly energised state of relaxation. It is excellent for people of all ages as it improves posture, balance and health. This event will be held on the croquet lawn, overlooking Shuttleworth House. Suitable for ages 16+.
