Learn how to find peace of mind and balance by learning the ancient art of Tai Chi.

The Essex Tai Chi Academy is running classes throughout the district and has a wide range of classes to suit young and old and all levels of fitness.

Judy Lee-Fenton is training to become a teacher for the not-for-profit organisation.

She said: “In a modern world where pressure and pace of life can bring problems of stress, anxiety, sleeplessness and lack of concentration, often need something to help us overcome and deal with these problems.

“Whatever your point in life tai chi has something to give.”

Classes are currently available in Earls Colne, Black Notley, Great Leighs, Burnham-on-Crouch, Cold Norton and a new beginners class will start shortly in White Notley.
