Age UK Somerset to train volunteers to teach Shibashi Tai Chi, as part of their ongoing commitment to Falls Prevention in Somerset
Posted: Tue, 11 Jun 2019 08:44
Following a successful application to obtain funding from the National Lottery Awards, Age UK Somerset will be training volunteers in both Somerset and North Somerset.
Volunteers will take part in a free training programme, which will enable them to lead a Shibashi Tai Chi Qi Gong class in their community. This Shibashi form means "18 moves" in Chinese. It is easy to learn and its effects are proven, helping to improve the blood pressure, balance, co-ordination and strength of participants.
This is a unique, independent programme and successful candidates will be fully trained and then supported to run classes in their community on behalf of Age UK Somerset.
No previous experience is required but it would ideally suit someone with experience of Tai Chi or someone who has led another type of exercise class. Being a volunteer with Age UK Somerset is rewarding, the classes are very sociable and there is a real sense of appreciation from those taking part.
