Morley/Noranda Recreation Club. 85 McGilvray Avenue Noranda, Perth, WA, Australia, Western Australia

Sorry Circlework friends but I have to take some time off to recover from some hernia repair. The prognosis is good, I just need some time off to heal.

Next Term 3 starts July 17. I look forward to picking up where we left off at the Morley/Noranda Recreation the meantime if you would like to connect use the FB site, I'm happy to chat etc.

Take care and keep moving.

Next term I will be focusing on using chairs as props in the Slow Yoga classes. We already work off of benches so same but different. We do the Sun Salutation variations off of outside tables when the weather supports being outside. These props are excellent to help with activating at end range and for locking in single leg balances. You can keep posted by staying connected to

The Qi Gong and Ti Chi classes are always focused on whole body bio-tensegrity and relaxation. Plus organizing and activating the myo-fascial lines.

Why is practicing Tai Chi good for your health?

  1. Improves balance and flexibility: Tai Chi involves slow, gentle movements that help improve balance and flexibility. Regular practice can reduce the risk of falls in older adults and can also help people with Parkinson's disease or multiple sclerosis.
  2. Reduces stress and anxiety: Tai Chi incorporates deep breathing and meditation techniques that can help reduce stress and anxiety. It has been shown to lower cortisol levels, a hormone associated with stress.
  3. Enhances cardiovascular health: Tai Chi is a low-impact aerobic exercise that can help improve cardiovascular health by increasing heart rate, blood circulation, and oxygen intake. Studies have shown that regular practice can lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease.
  4. Helps manage chronic conditions: Tai Chi has been found to be beneficial in managing chronic conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It can help improve pain, fatigue, and other symptoms associated with these conditions.

 Why is practicing Slow Yoga good for your health as an older adult?

·         Improved flexibility and mobility: Yoga poses and stretches can help older adults improve their flexibility, balance, and range of motion, making it easier to perform everyday activities and reducing the risk of falls.

·         Reduced stress and anxiety: Practicing yoga can help older adults reduce stress and anxiety, which can have a positive impact on their mental health and overall well-being.

·         Increased strength and muscle tone: Many yoga poses require the use of body weight and resistance, which can help older adults build strength and muscle tone, particularly in areas such as the arms, legs, and core.

·         Improved cardiovascular health: Some styles of yoga, such as Vinyasa or Ashtanga, can be quite physically demanding and provide a good cardiovascular workout, helping to improve heart health and reduce the risk of heart disease. Slow Yoga is different because the pace is reduced so that the mind can pay closer attention to how we move and how we feel.
