Many survivors of brain injury need support to work on changes to both body and mind following their injury. Tai Chi is an ancient martial art and health cultivation practice that is soft, flowing and meditative. Research has demonstrated its value for a range of neurological conditions.
In this session, Dr Yeates will introduce the role of tai chi for survivors of brain injury and will guide attendees through some Tai Chi sequences.
