SWI members up to avoid falls through Tai Chi
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.
