Tai chi combines deep breathing and relaxation with flowing movements. Originally developed as a martial art in 13th-century China, tai chi is today practised around the world as a health-promoting exercise.

This practice combines a deep breathing and relaxation with slow and gentle movements that put very litte pressure on bones and joints. It can help release stress and tension and promotes relaxation, co-ordination, muscle tone, increased energy flow, confidence, good posture and balance.

All the sessions are tailored to people with cancer and are flexible to suit your own needs, so you only need to do what feels comfortable.

If you want to take part, wear the sort of clothing that allows plenty of unrestricted movement.

This is a drop-in group session, so there's no need to book in advance.
