The original Mill Hill U3A Tai Chi Group started some years ago, and has a regular 10 Members who are progressing well, absolutely love the class, and have great respect for our Instructor.
Elliot, our Instructor, has been thoroughly vetted and approved by our EC Rules & Regulatory processes, is very highly qualified, and teaches a pure form of Tai Chi to us in Mill Hill, as well as to other local U3A groups. Our Classes are limited to our Mill Hill U3A current Members only.
As the original class has advanced to the stage where a new beginner would not catch up, the original class has now closed to new Members. However a new Beginners Class was started in February 2019.
During Lockdown both classes were closed, and in the second lockdown an attempt has been made to organise our Tai Chi on Zoom for the advanced class.
Sadly the Beginners Class could not be organised successfully on Zoom and at the moment there is no date that can be predicted when it can start again. If you would like to be put on a waiting list, please let Val know, and you will receive an acknowledgement of your application, and if you are a current Member when it restarts, and on the waiting list, you will automatically be contacted as appropriate.
Upon application Members receive an explanatory email with full details of cost, venue and other relevant information so that an informed view can be taken as to suitability. All of this updated information will be forwarded to you when restarting.
Classes were running weekly throughout the year and are closed only on the rare occasions when either our Instructor is unavailable, or the venue closes. The current global situation has, of course, ended this.
Both Classes are held at a well – known venue in the Mill Hill area, where free parking is available, both at the venue & in the surrounding roads, which also have no parking restrictions, and hopefully will continue at the same venue when resuming.
Taijiquan or Tai Chi is a 400 year old internal marshal art.
In the west it is called the moving meditation. With its slow concentrated relaxed movement, correct posture and body alignment, the benefits of better health is one of the results of this ancient art.
Tai Chi was designed with the knowledge of chi flowing through the meridians of our body like acupuncture, so every correct posture practiced increases the chi and blood flow in our bodies.
Some of the other benefits of regular practice are: reduction of stress, anxiety & depression, greater flexibility and agility, improved balance, including a reduction of falls in older adults.
It can help cardiovascular fitness, and improve sleep quality.
It offers an overall feeling of well – being and relaxation.
