Home Exercise film 3 now ready!

Today, we published the third film in the series: Home Exercise, Tai Chi on our website www.generationgames.org.uk. The below orange button will take you directly to the video (17 mins).

This week’s class is Tai Chi, providing easy repeating moves that anyone can do, at whatever level suits them – seated or standing. Each movement is simple in itself, but the combination of movements works to exercise the whole body, improving balance and coordination and allowing joints to move through their natural range. Trials of Tai Chi have proved it effective in helping heart health, lung issues and pain management, as well as giving mental relief. 

If you’ve never tried Tai Chi, this could be an opportunity.

With very best wishes,
Generation Games

P.S.: If you happen to be listening to BBC Radio Oxford today you may hear this film mentioned! Play now
