Now at the end of March we are all in the UK and many other countries following government advice to stay safe and well at home, which can be isolating for us all.
At Tai Ji Circle we are moving all our classes online until further notice. Now we have set up our Zoom Taiji Classes and they are working well. We of course miss Shifu Liu’s precise adjustments to posture in a real class, but at least this way we can gather together, follow his movements, discuss any questions and practice together in our own homes.
We have shared our link on information about Yifei Gong, created by Grandmaster Chen Xiaowang to practice at home and support and strengthen our immune system and help lung health.
We recommend that everyone follows the government and NHS guidelines, and contact 111 by phone or online or contact their doctor if they are ill.
• the vulnerable and over 70’s remain safe at home, washing the hands if entering or leaving home, and
• self-isolation for 7-14 days if you or anyone in your family is ill.
Here are some of the web links for checking full government and NHS guidelines. It is however very important to keep exercising safely for health and well being.
Camden Age UK have also set up a number of activities and services for people aged over 55 who are unwell, self-isolating or struggling to get out that you can take part in from home. They are offering an assisted online shopping service, live streaming music recitals every day, an online book club and a telephone befriending service.
