The Stroke Association has launched a new exercise group to support people affected by stroke in West Norfolk.
The Stroke Association’s Wellbeing Tai Chi group will take place at Reffley Community Hall, every Thursday from 11:30am. The charity is inviting anyone affected by stroke in West Norfolk to come along and get involved.
Diane West, Stroke Association Support Coordinator in West Norfolk, said: “Stroke has a massive and sudden impact, and it’s a leading cause of disability. People’s lives are changed forever - not just for the stroke survivor, but for their family and friends as well.
“Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese martial art, which can improve people's balance, muscle strength and endurance, as well as providing psychological benefits. The Tai Chi classes will involve physical movements, along with breathing exercises and mental concentration.
“We look forward to working with local Tai Chi teacher, Glenn Belton, to help more people recover from the devastating impact of stroke.”
