Tai Chi for people with learning disabilities at Winchester Road Methodist Church

Dao Lu is piloting an 8-week Tai Chi project for people with learning disabilities. Dao Lu is working in partnership with Days 4 U 2, a voluntary organisation running a day centre for people with learning disabilities, and hoping to set up a sustainable weekly session for more people with learning disabilities in the near future. This was a result of a free taster session on 26 April 2017 which was well received.

  • From 24th May to 12th July 2017
  • Every Wednesday, 11:30 – 12:30
  • At Winchester Road Methodist Church, Winchester Road, Highams Park, London E4 9JP
