Make Tai Chi part of your New Year’s resolutions. Trainer Connie Wong tells how this traditional Chinese practice can benefit your health and wellbeing.

Connie has led our Friday Tai Chi classes since 2008 and has 18 years of experience in the field. With a specialty in Tai Chi for Arthritis, Connie focuses on exercise and movement for independent living.

What she enjoys most about working with the Balwyn Evergreen community is being able to “promote independence and enhance the quality of living”.

So what are Connie’s Tai Chi tips for staying active over the December/January period? Mix it up with resistance and cardio.

Move against ‘imaginary’ resistance while standing on softly bent knees,” she says, adding that walking and chatting with friends is just as important.

For mindfulness, Connie recommends deep breathing and rhythm of breathing with arm movements.

And for nutrition? Small portions with each meal!
