Body and Mind - How Joyce Uses Tai Chi to Keep Moving
Joyce is 70 years old and was diagnosed with osteoarthritis 30 years ago following a sporting injury sustained in a Judo class. Joyce first discovered Tai Chi when attending a Buddhist retreat and immediately felt the physical and mental benefits of the lower impact, mindful form of exercise.
Joyce has since become a volunteer Tai Chi instructor, putting on classes for other people with arthritis in her local area on the west coast of Scotland.
In this episode Joyce speaks to Alex about how she has learnt to move at her own pace and how Tai Chi differs from other more typical forms of exercise.
NOTE: Audio is occasionally choppy in this episode but there is still so much great wisdom and advice in amongst the occasional small jump.
