This is a decent way to open a Fall Prevention talk before sharing the tai chi program. There is the mention of the fear of falling, which is becoming more recognized as to what holds people back. Tai Chi can help some break through that by trying movements in their own comfort zones.
I found this to be a good explanation of why we should move! I know in the therapy gym we do not hear the excuse, “Well, I am old you know.” This can help explain how changing thought can change our perspective.

This course is a 3hr intro to spiraling and silk reeling.
Silk reeling refers to a set of internal movement principles expressed in traditional styles of t’ai chi ch’uan, but especially emphasised by the Chen and Wu styles The name derives from the twisting and spiraling movements of the silkworm larva as it wraps itself in its cocoon, and to the metaphorical principle of “reeling the silk from a silk worm’s cocoon”. In order to draw out the silk successfully the action must be smooth and consistent without jerking or changing direction sharply. Too fast, the silk breaks, too slow, it sticks to itself and becomes tangled. Thus silk reeling movements are continuous, cyclic, spiraling patterns performed at constant speed with the “light touch” of drawing silk. Pulled from Wikipedia
This is based on the event at Tuckahoe. For those that missed it, you will have a chance to enjoy it as we did. For those that can’t get enough, I look forward to having you share what you have been playing with!
