Tai Chi for Health & Falls Prevention

Tai-Chi

Tai Chi

The health benefits of Tai Chi have been known to the Chinese for hundreds of years.

Now Gympie residents can also practice the gentle movements of Tai Chi to improve movement and to have fun as well. CHSN has a range of Tai Chi groups aimed at promoting healthy exercise and prevention of falls. Tai Chi increases confidence and improves balance, builds muscle strength, bone mass and joint mobility, helping to prevent falls. It also aids relaxation, coordination and visualisation.

Tai Chi for Health and Falls Prevention consists of a beginners group and a maintenance group that meet every Wednesday morning at a local hall. Groups take place in a friendly atmosphere of support and social interaction enjoyed by all.

How does CHSN assist the community?

A strong network of organisations across many sectors and caring individuals within the community make up the CHSN family. CHSN provides a base for networking to support both interagency and advocacy roles. CHSN has transitioned into a physical 'hub' that is very active on the coalface of community needs. CHSN disseminates information across the Gympie region and is also responsible for facilitating training events and forums. CHSN acts in an auspicing and nurturing role for many smaller unfunded groups. The Gympie region is very well served by CHSN as a vital player in providing holistic approach to community development, across intergenerational bounds.
