SWI mem­bers up to avoid falls through Tai Chi

Campbeltown Courier - - DISTRICT NEWS -

A demon­stra­tion on the health ben­e­fits of Tai Chi opened Largieside SWI’s 2018/19 sea­son. Pres­i­dent He­len Steel gave a warm wel­come to reg­u­lar mem­bers in Tayin­loan vil­lage hall and also a few new mem­bers be­fore Jackie Ful­ton demon­strated Tai Chi. Jackie, from Arthri­tis, health and falls, ably ex­plained the mar­tial art, as seen by Dr Paul Lam, an Aus­tralian of Chi­nese ori­gin and how it trans­formed into Tai Chi as it is known to­day. They spoke about how the slow gen­tle move­ments can be good for health and how Tia Chi can as­sist mo­bil­ity, bal­ance, pain and can strengthen mus­cles.

Com­pe­ti­tions were judged and the re­sults as fol­lows: a col­lage: Colleen McCal­lum, five points, a hol­i­day pic­ture; Colleen McCal­lum five; Adri­enne Bradley four; Pat Raw­son three; Amanda White two; He­len Steel two. The next meet­ing on Oc­to­ber 18, to which any­one is wel­come, in­cludes a make-up demon­stra­tion.
