Tomorrow is the fifth week of our Mindful Contact with Nature course at Marbury Country Park. This initial five-week course offered people the opportunity to engage in the mindful movement of tai chi in the beautiful natural surroundings of the country park in Northwich. The sessions are free of charge, and delivered by the wonderful Donna.
Tai chi was originally developed as a martial art in 13th-century China, but today it is practised all over the globe as a great form of low-impact physical activity! Research has demonstrated that tai chi is effective at reducing stress, improving posture, balance and general mobility, and increasing muscular strength in the legs, which is critical for preventing falls later in life. The picturesque surroundings of Marbury County Park provide a peaceful, natural environment, where additional benefits to physical and mental health are on offer as a result of engaging with nature. Through deep and slow breathing, we bring both mind and body to a place of calm, enabling us to enjoy the stress reducing wonders of nature with a more mindful awareness!
Following the success of the five-week programme, we are pleased to be offering a further five weeks, completely free of charge. With no previous experience required, this is a great opportunity for you to get involved and start reaping the health benefits on offer!
Sessions take place Friday morning 10:00-11:00 am at Marbury Country Park, no booking required – just turn up!
