Come Join World Tai Chi Day in Worcester!
On the last Saturday of April each year an unprecedented and spectacular moving global happening occurs in over 70 nations, in hundreds of cities worldwide. Tens of thousands of people come together for the sold purpose of advancing personal and global health & healing.
This event is known as World Tai Chi and Qi Gong Day! And we do our part every year right here in Worcester.
This Saturday, April 30th from 10:00 am – 12:00 noon we will be performing and teaching Tai Chi with a Qi Gong warm-up first at 10 am at Elm Park, Worcester (near the wooden bridge, weather permitting = rain location at the kung fu school, 1326 Main St, Worcester).

This is an open to the public FREE event (preferred by mostly adults/teens/college students/seniors!).
These last few years has been a huge success and is still growing!
For those of you who are not totally familiar…
“Tai Chi Chuan is an ancient Chinese practice that helps the student to discipline their mind and body, a slow relaxed motion of moving meditation that helps the student gain greater flexibility, strength, proper body alignment and balance. As the Tai Chi student learns to relax during practice, they begin to develop an awareness and control of their mind and body.
It is said that a decrease of physical and emotional tension resulting from regular Tai Chi practice also stimulates certain areas of the brain responsible for controlling the body’s immune system, thus promoting resistance to illness and infections. Clinical studies have shown that Tai Chi practice is effective in reducing high blood pressure and a host of other stress related ailments. Tai Chi Chuan is also used as physical therapy in China, as well as in a number of progressive clinics in the United States, for treatment of stress related disorders.”
Tai Chi classes with Qi Gong warm-ups are every Monday & Wednesdays at the kwoon (kung fu school) 5:45 to 6:45 PM. The first class is ALWAYS free to try! Tuition is $65.00 per person monthly!
