Tai Chi and Tea

  • Start Date: June 11, 2018 at 12:00 pm
  • End Date: June 22, 2018 at 1:00 pm
  • Location: Various
  • Ticket Price: 0.00

Presented as part of the University’s Wellbeing Programme, we are delighted to offer staff the opportunity to take part in a Tai Chi and Tea session.

Originating in ancient China, Tai Chi is one of the most effective exercises for your mind and body health.

Tai Chi combines deep breathing and relaxation with flowing movement and can lead to reduced stress, improved posture, balance and general mobility, and as well increased muscle strength. Just 45 minutes of this gentle martial art can focus the mind, formulate thoughts, develop creative ideas and de-stress the body.

The sessions will be completed with a cleansing Chinese tea to enjoy with your colleagues. Rooms are booked for indoor sessions but if the weather is nice the instructor may move the session to a quiet spot outdoors.

Sessions will take place across our campuses. All staff are welcome to attend.

You can book your place at a session using the following links:

Hi, I’m afraid that this event is available for staff members at the University. Best wishes – Rebecca

Is this just a one off session or is this to become a permanent course? Thanks

Hi Delia. The Tai Chi sessions have been organised as a one-off activity as part of the University’s Wellbeing Events Programme. However we are currently reviewing our wellbeing provision at the University and will be looking at the activities that are valued by our staff, so there is potential to offer these again at a later point. We will be sending around an evaluation form following the sessions that will give staff the opportunity to feedback about this activity. Staff can also keep up-to-date with the activities that are offered via the People and Culture blog (https://blogs.nottingham.ac.uk/peopleandculture). Best wishes – Rebecca
