At this time of year, there are various services available from the Council:
It seems there is an international day for everything.
Well, today is World Tai Chi and Qigong day.
Tai Chi (also spelled Taiji) is a sequence of movements combining Qigong and Chinese martial arts, designed to improve physical and mental well-being. In China, it is common to see groups of people doing Taiji in the park.
Qigong (sometimes spelled Chi Kung) is the ancient Chinese study of energy or Qi. In particular, Qigong is a series of gentle movements designed to improve the Qi in your body. The low-impact and gentle movements are especially popular with older people.
Tied in with Qi is the concept of Yin and Yang, and trying to balance constantly-changing conditions. In Chinese Traditional Medicine, you have good health when the energy in your body is balanced and can flow easily through your body.
Coronavirus is still limiting activities at the moment, but there will be plenty of classes around when the world becomes more normal.
There is a session on how to manage your own mental health. It will take place online on Friday 16 October at 12:30 p.m.
