Tai Chi participants embrace Live Well Logan program

A healthy living activity offered through a popular Logan City Council program has been embraced by members of the Logan community.

Logan Tai Chi for Health owner Dennis O’Brien started his business in March and in July he joined forces with Council’s Live Well Logan program.

The program offers local residents access to a wide range of free and low-cost activities such as boxfit, soccer for teen girls, jujitsu, seniors’ functional fitness, tiny tots ball skills, cooking classes, hula and a balance class.

Class member Lynne Jackson has a busy life as a carer for both her husband and mother.

Mrs Jackson said when she is doing tai chi she feels relaxed and her mind becomes clearer.

“I love the fact the classes are held five minutes from where I live and the biggest bonus is it’s only $5 each week which a very affordable price for me.”

Five tai chi classes are held across Logan as part of Live Well Logan.

Mr O’Brien said tai chi helped with arthritis, well-being, relaxation, stress and anxiety.

“I invite anyone who is interested to come along. I make it fun and we have a good laugh.”

The Spring Mountain class is from 9am to 10am each Thursday in the reserve on Tully Connection Rd.

Beginners are welcome.

Anyone wanting a more active and healthy lifestyle is encouraged to explore the 2019-2020 Live Well Logan program.

The activities are designed to suit everyone regardless of their age, gender, mobility or work schedule.
