Karyn Cronin, ChiBall instructor and business owner of a, b, chi, has started running classes in Butler, Jindalee and Yanchep.

Mrs Cronin said the classes were similar to tai chi, using movements to rejuvenate the body, but had a twist.

‘The twist is that the gentle movements are performed with a variety of coloured ChiBalls, each one infused with its own matching essential oil to promote healing and restore balance,’ she said.

Mrs Cronin has been practising Shibashi and ChiBall for nearly two years and is a member of the Tai Chi Association of Australia.

‘I knew I had discovered a way to feel good every day and decided to pursue this path professionally,’ she said.

‘I felt there was a niche to provide women (particularly those of a certain age and stage in their life) with the option of a gentle, yet effective, wellbeing program.’

Though anyone can take part, Mrs Cronin is also a certified Menofitness trainer and recommended the activity for women over 40 looking for a holistic approach to health.

There will be indoor and outdoor classes, each costing $10 with the first class free. Email abchi@iinet.net.au.
