All this occurs through movement and breathing exercises whose primary aim is the systematic moving and balancing of the chi (energy) in the human body. The ba duan jin exercises can be practised standing and sitting, making them beneficial and suitable for all fitness levels and abilities. The cost is €20 per workshop, payable on the door, with all proceeds going to Western Care Association. For further information and bookings contact Arend on 094 9367536 or 087 1679031.
