    Tai Chi by the River

    Strength, flexibility, stillness - a moving meditation

    Whether tai chi is a part of your regular health practice, or whether you have often thought you would like to find out more about tai chi, experiencing this session by the Speed River on a spring evening is for you!  We will meet at Goldie Mill Park, and begin by doing a few simple fundamental exercises to get our bodies moving. The experienced tai chi players in the group will then have the opportunity to do a set together, while beginners observe the routine. Following that, beginners will be invited to learn the first moves in the set! 

    Note: Come dressed in loose clothing, with flat shoes or running shoes. There is no indoor alternative for this event should it be a rainy evening. If it rains, we will have to postpone the event until next year!

    Accessible: No

    Hosted by: Fung Loy Kok Taoist Tai Chi
