New Tai Chi classes in Burnley to help MS sufferers
3:00pm Monday 18th March 2013 in News
PEOPLE affected by the neurological condition multiple sclerosis (MS) can join up for a new exercise activity supported by the Burnley and Pendle MS Society Branch.
The Tai Chi group was set up with the hope that the sessions will help people with MS to maintain a healthy lifestyle and also find some peer support.
The sessions are for anyone living with MS in the Burnley, Pendle and surrounding areas.
They will be held at 10.30am every Monday for an hour at Burnley Boys Club with access between 136 and 138 New Hall Road.
Helena Kean, instructor with Lighthouse Tai Chi, said: “We have just started the classes but it is a really friendly group to work with. “People come with different backgrounds and abilities but we can help them all enjoy some gentle tai chi.”
