In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.


Details
Tai Chi is a gentle but powerful form of flowing movement that may help in improving balance, spinal alignment and posture, physical strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness. By combining the slow movement with the breath many people find it beneficial in reducing stress and anxiety. Tai chi can be done seated or standing or a combination of both depending on participants’ requirements.

Weekly sessions for people with Parkinson’s are led by Tai Chi, Chi Kung and Meditation Teacher Kevin Brown as follows:

The contribution towards class costs is £3 per session bookable in a block, the length of which can vary (generally 6 sessions).

Payment is preferably by cheque (to Edinburgh Branch Parkinson’s UK) at the first session (or the next session if someone has to miss the first). If cheque is not possible, participants can pay the block sum in cash but please put the money in an envelope with your name on it.

Newcomers are free for their first block or part thereof (depending on when they first join), as long as there is space.

People with Parkinson’s can be accompanied to the sessions.

For more information: please contact Kevin Brown on 01506 845 498 (leave a message if he is out) or email, kevin@chi-flow.co.uk
