Come and try FREE activities on our fields

Our fields are one of the "active parks" pilots and through 
this Birmingham City Council is offering a number of FREE
activities on the fields over  the next few weeks.  The first 
of these is Tai Chi, which will run twice a week (as below) 
from 27 June.
 

What is Tai Chi?

Most people think of Tai Chi as a wonderfully relaxing exercise performed in parks throughout China, in the early morning. This is true to some extent. Tai Chi is relaxing, but it also strengthens the body, improves circulation and is an effective form of self-defence. To learn the form is merely to scratch the surface.

As an exercise it can strengthen you both mentally and physically by improving your levels of relaxation and teaching you about correct body alignment.

The holistic nature of this ancient martial art makes it suitable for people of all ages and all levels of fitness as it adapts itself to suit your abilities.

 
WHEN is TAI CHI?
Tai Chi – Starts Thursday 27th June at 7-8pm at Holders Lane
 
MEET OUTSIDE THE PAVILLION OFF HOLDERS LANE
 
 

And from Saturday 29th June 10.30-11.30am at Pebble Mill Fields

 
MEET BY PEBBLE MILL BRIDGE 
 
***FREE as part of Birmingham City Council ‘active parks’ Pilot***
