Age UK Volunteering Opportunity

Age UK Somerset are looking to train Tai Chi for Health leaders

Age UK are looking to train volunteers across the County in Somerset and North Somerset and support successful candidates to run classes in their Community on behalf of Age UK Somerset.

No previous experience is required although it would be an advantage, however, it would suit someone who has experienced Tai Chi or some form of exercise, Yoga or even amateur dramatics experience.  In return for the training a willingness to teach a regular class once a week, with their full support and supervision.

The form is called Shibashi and means 18 in Chinese.  It is easy to learn and the effects are amazing, helping to reduce Blood Pressure, improve balance, relaxes and improves feelings of wellbeing and the movements are slow and inclusive.


Being a volunteer with Age UK Somerset is very rewarding, as well as benefitting others it will benefit you too.  The classes are very sociable.  So if you fancy it, do get in touch with dianne.ramsay@ageuksomerst.org.uk or ring 01823 345626.
