My name is Chris Newell and I am a new member of MNRC and would like to offer some of my fitness skills to the mix of activities here at the club. I live locally and I am interested in forming a Tai Chi group here at the Club. I aim to train clients to learn healthy movement habits and develop healthy nervous systems.

I teach a form of whole-body exercise called Circlework. Circlework is based on the principles and practices of modern sports science and mindfulness techniques. Tai Chi is an excellent example of an exercise that benefits our bodies are well as our minds.  

With Circlework I teach safe moment patterns with the training goal of High Performance Aging. Our main training goal is better health so we want to minimise injury and maximise vitality.
