Floating Lotus

floating lotusAs part of the Big Lottery Funded Ultimate Wellbeing programme, we will be delivering a Floating Lotus Tai Chi project for girls and women who have experienced, or are experiencing, any kind of abuse or domestic violence between April and June 2015.

In Chinese culture the floating lotus represents inner strength – overcoming difficult times and
blossoming to radiate stunning, but humble beauty. Sessions are run indoors by understanding female instructors who will respect confidentiality. Meet other girls and women, help build self-esteem, relax and enjoy the training and support.
