Llangunllo WI – An Afternoon of Tai Chi

Llangunllo WI An afternoon of Tai-Chi

At the February Meeting members were certainly active as they undertook the Chinese martial art of Thai Chi with instructor Paul Newman.

Thai Chi practised for self–defence and health, known for its slow, intentional movements, is a popular form of gentle exercise and moving meditation with benefits to mental and physical health. Paul shared his experiences of Thai Chi, giving its history and demonstrating a number of the moves involved. He then led members in some of these (see photographs) and all agreed it had been a most interesting and enjoyable time.

Business followed and included, a report on member voting for NFWI Resolution 2024 and the very successful week at the Charity Shop in Kington, arranging the Community Spring Lunch and an Open Meeting for April and discussing entries for the County Show in May. A bring-and-share tea rounded off the afternoon.

From March we return to evening meetings and the next is the AGM on Tuesday 7th at 7pm in Llangunllo Community Hall, followed by a “hands-on” session, “All About Wool,” led by member Rebecca Twyman.

Visitors and new members are always welcome, please contact Isabel (Secretary) on 01547 550689/
