Why not join in...
Being a village hall there are many classes and meetings which take place regularly every week. Why not get involved and join in with the local community spirit.

Wudang Tai Chi Chuan
If you suffer from Anxiety, Depression, high blood pressure. Qi gong is an art that can help you feel like you’re getting back in control. I will teach you moves to help, these moves are easily remembered and you can practice this immediately at home when you need it.
With a little practice and starting with the training form (The Square Long Form) to prepare your muscles, I will teach you the moves to accomplish The Round Long Form of Wudang Tai Chi Chuan. This is the flowing movement you often see. It truely is a Mind, Body and Spirit Experience.
The slow movement massages your internal organs, exercises your muscles and brain, gives you a feeling of wellbeing and a total sense of achievement. I personally have practiced for 17 years and have found it wonderful to practice alone, with friends, on the beach, in a nature reserve, by the pool, the list is endless.
If some exercise classes are too much for you, this is perfect and often recommended by many physicians for mental health and to move your body gently.
I have teaching and assessment qualifications for 16+ and currently have two classes; beginners and intermediate. These take place at the hall on a Thursday morning at 11.30am.
If you have any questions or want to try a class please contact Helen at TaiChiChuan@TheEnglands.me.uk
There are quiz nights held at our hall. Keep and eye on our website for dates if you fancy a go.
