Bexleyheath welcomed one of the world's most renowned Tai Chi teachers for a special master class.

Master Faye Yip put 20 participants through their paces at the scout hut in Bean Road.

She is a founder of the Deyin Taijiquan Institute UK, is on the technical panel of the Tai Chi Union for Great Britain and is president of the British Health Qigong Association.

The Chinese martial art can help to increase energy levels, improve flexibility, suppleness and posture, improve balance and co-ordination and reduce stress levels.

Rhonda Bailey, who organised the event on November 2, said: "People travelled from near and far to take part in the day.

"Master Faye demonstrated how correct body alignment helps to alleviate neck problems from too much time spent in front of the computer and emphasised how the slow movements of the discipline strengthen leg muscles to support the knees.

"Her demonstrations of the Tai Chi form were exquisite and it was an honour to have someone who is so highly regarded in the Tai Chi community come to Bexley and share her expertise."
