Tai Chi 

2:30pm - 3:30pm
Faith Centre, Desert Room

"Tai Chi can improve your flexibility, balance and strength. It is also a wonderful tool to feel more grounded and relaxed. It can be simply practised as a series of movements for health or taken as a life-long learning process. Whichever way, I find there is always something to benefit from."
These sessions are suitable for beginners or those with previous experience
Cost is £5 per class attended
Open to LSE staff and students
