Our meeting room is on the ground floor and has disabled toilets near by. There is also disabled parking right outside and a big car park that is free of charge.
This meeting we will be welcoming along Ilona Tate who is a Tai Chi instructor with 25 years experience. Ilona has used Tai Chi to help her manage anxiety, depression and other health conditions. She has taught Tai Chi though Newcastle City Council, North Tyneside Council, as well as running private classes too. She also practised and taught Tai Chi in London, and has travelled to Hong Kong to learn from Masters in Tai Chi. Ilona will be taking us through a demonstration of Tai Chi and it’s calming effects.
Ilona says “I remain convinced by my 25 years or so of tai chi and qigong practice that it has so much to offer us in terms of our physical, mental and spiritual well-being.”
There has been a recent study into Tai Chi and how it can be a good form of exercise to people who live with Fibromyalgia, so I’m really looking forward to learning more!
