Digital adventures with Mycenae Reach Out

A refreshed relationship. YT has had an occasional relationship with Mycenae House for some time, attempting a Breezie talk in 2014 and some drop in sessions.

Tai chi but no IT – tongue twister!

Halfway through a set of sessions for SELVIS, YT thought it would be good to write up some thoughts about the sessions, as this is a really pleasing situation for me – normally known as an IT tutor to SELVIS members, this perception is being shifted to being a tai chi trainer.  Only two weeks […]
