Helen and Val look forward to welcoming new starters who'd like to give Tai Chi ago as well as participants from our other classes in Airedale and Craven.

Helen says, "Originally created as a martial art, Tai Chi today is practised for its health benefits as series of slow, continuous movements that build strength, improve balance, and promote deep relaxation."

Val says, "The great thing about Tai Chi is that age and ability is no barrier and more importantly, Tai Chi is a daily activity that I enjoy doing and would like other people to feel the same benefits I have."

Val Preston runs her own business, Truly Essential Holistic & Beauty Therapist. She started learning Tai Chi for Health in 2017 and aims to become a certified instructor this year.
