The Belgrade are delighted to be able host a tai chi session, led by Coventry University’s Confucius Institute. This is part of our Chinese New Year celebrations in the lead up to our East Asian-led production, Under the Umbrella, which runs from 2 – 16 March.

Combining deep breathing and relaxation with flowing movements, tai chi originally developed as a martial art in 13th-century China. It is is now practiced around the world to promote health and well-being.

Baduanjin, the type of tai chi we will be doing in this session, is a set of qigong exercises that originated in China, which is often translated as the Eight Pieces of Brocade. The name of the form refers to how the eight individual movements of the form characterise a silken quality to the body. By doing these eight movements at least once a day, it is said that you should notice improved health, increased energy, reduced stress and an overall sense of well-being.

This session is aimed at over-50s, but adults of any age are welcome if they feel they would benefit.
