Dukeries Tai Chi Society celebrates 20th anniversary

THE Dukeries Tai Chi Society, which meets weekly at Edwinstowe Village Hall, is celebrating its 20th anniversary.

Senior Instructor Bryan Frettsome and his colleagues continue to accept members from all adult age ranges who have a desire to participate as complete novices or semi-experienced candidates.

He explains that initially students begin with a process of learning a series of soft movements you see performed in the parks in China, progressing towards a system of moving meditation.

He added: “It takes the average student about six months to gain any real proficiency; even so, most students begin to improve posture, balance and breathing, bringing stress under control after only a few lessons.”

The group meet on Wednesdays, 8-10pm. New members are always welcome, contact Bryan on 01623 822827, e-mail bryan.frettsome@btinternet.com or write to Forest Glade, 17, Robin Hood Avenue, Edwinstowe, Mansfield, Notts NG21 9LG.
