How incredible that we can learn from a world class master – for free right here in manningham.
These tai chi classes not only improve our community’s health and fitness but also our mental and spiritual wellbeing, increasing feelings of inclusion and connectedness.We have an aging population in Manning ham, and we want to support our residents to live long and healthy lives.Tai Chi is the perfect example of an activity that all ages can join, including our older adults, to keep moving and stay active.
If more of our residents come to these classes and practice tai chi, we can build a healthier, more resilient community.We encourage all our community to get involved in tai chi, and to consider an apprenticeship.
To hear that Wendy is continuing these classes at age 70 is inspirational. I think the greatest honor we can give her is to prepare the next generation of masters who can continue this great program, to inherit Wendy’s love of tai chi and hopefully attain the same same akills as her
On behalf of council, I also thank the AWCC tai chi charity organization, its volunteers, and its apprentices
