First CHSP Tai Chi Session

This is the third year that the CHSP (Commonwealth Home Support Program) has run a Tai Chi program. 

Tai Chi is a form of gentle exercise that is described as meditation in motion. Having originated from China as a form of martial arts, Tai Chi has long been popular among individuals in order to keep fit and prevent disease.

Vivien, Susan and John demonstrated the basic movements for everyone to follow. They went on to demonstrate some martial arts movements and proper breathing techniques. 

Ten participants were present at this first session, a good number considering the gloomy weather outside. Overall the class was very successful, both the men and women were keen to learn and participate. 

After class, the seniors continued the mindful health theme by sharing a balanced, low calorie, nutritious lunch.
