Tai Chi for Seniors  5 April 2005

The latest 12-week free course of Tai Chi for Seniors started on Thursday, 24 March.  Ian Cameron runs the sessions at the Noosaville Lions Park in Gympie Terrace every Thursday from 7.30 am to 8.30 am, weather permitting.  The program will run until 9 June and participants may attend any or all of the classes.

Ian conducted a very popular Tai Chi program at Council's Noosa Leisure Centre last year with most sessions booked out and a number of participants continuing Tai Chi privately.   One of the many aims of this program is to promote involvement in regular physical activity for senior members of the community in order to improve health and well-being, and encourage them to have fun in a social atmosphere.

The launch of this latest series attracted  35 participants, one of them Pam Campbell of Sunrise Beach, who is a second time veteran of the Seniors program.  "The ambience of the riverside venue lends itself perfectly to the relaxing nature of Tai Chi," said Mrs Campbell.   "Ian is a very patient and calm teacher and Tai Chi is an excellent form of exercise, particularly for Noosa's more mature residents. "

Tai Chi for Seniors  is an initiative of Noosa Council, jointly funded by Sport and Recreation Queensland.  For more information contact Michael Shaw on 5449 5100 in Council's Community Development section.
