Chinese Community in Peterborough

Back to Activities

The Chinese Community in Peterborough group offer support, advice and opportunities to socialise and connect with other people from the Chinese community, and others with an interest in Chinese culture and activities.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • The Chinese Community in Peterborough organises courses to support physical activity and wellbeing
  • Activities keep people connected and create a sense of being part of a big family
  • Joining activities helps to avoid loneliness and isolation

‘I found this [Tai Chi] class very calming, I felt in good hands and am very grateful to the Chinese community of Peterborough for opening their arms out to the wider community in helping us get better, healthier, showing us a great and ancient skill and sharing knowledge of energy and movement in order we can help ourselves stay healthier.’

Faustina introduces the Chinese Community in Peterborough group and some of the things they do (first half in English, second half in Chinese):

More information

Tai Chi is renowned for its ability to improve balance, flexibility, and overall physical health, while the meditative aspect of this ancient Chinese practice promotes mental clarity and emotional wellbeing.

The Tai Chi sessions organised by the Chinese Community group are led by a certified Tai Chi instructor with a wealth of experience. You will receive guidance from a professional who is dedicated to ensuring that you gain the maximum benefit from each session.

The sessions are once per week during school terms, Saturdays 10:30am to 12:30pm (10:30am warming up, 11am to 12pm teaching time, 12pm onwards socialising and tidy up). They are held in the Knights Chamber Room at the Peterborough Cathedral, in the Minster Precinct, Peterborough, PE1 1XS. If you don’t know where the Knights Chamber Room is, ask any of the friendly Cathedral volunteers or staff.

Sessions are free as they are funded by the Evelyn Trust.
