Tai Chi for Wellbeing

22nd April - 15th July

The Bishop’s Palace will begin hosting weekly Tai Chi for Wellbeing sessions in our magnificent gardens from 22nd April 2021.

Led by local practitioner John Beasley, who has over 20 years of Tai Chi experience, these sessions will promote wellness and mindfulness.

Tai Chi is a non-competitive martial art known for both its defense techniques and its health benefits.

As an exercise, it comprises gentle physical exercise and stretching with mindfulness.

The sessions are suitable for all regardless of age or ability.

Tai Chi will take place in the gardens. All sessions are drop in with no booking required. Booking guarantees a place if the sessions has to be moved indoors due to bad weather. Booking is available here.

There will be occasions where an indoor alternative is not available in poor weather and there will be no booking available for these sessions.
