Ruby Ho, a qualified Ba Duan Jin (BDJ) instructor, and retired Occupational Therapist, will give a brief demonstration of Ba Duan Jin movements. BDJ is a form of qigong, a set of traditional Chinese health preservation exercises, cultivating the vital energy life force (Qi) through the combination of body movements, breath and mind work (Qong).
This form of exercise is believed to be beneficial to everyone, including people with Parkinson’s. Please join us in the group practice during this Tuesday Afternoon Social Meeting. Please wear loose fitting clothes and soft flat shoes for the taster practice.
Ruby is offering her second series of classes starting 3 April 2024. These classes are delivered remotely using Zoom and are free of charge.
