World Tai Chi & QiGong Day

On April 25, 2009, the 11th World Tai Chi & QiGong Day will take place in over 60 countries around the world. You can be part of this global event by joining me this Saturday afternoon at 1:30 in the open area outside the Long Branch Community Center, Silver Spring, Maryland.

This annual event was created in 1999 to promote Tai Chi and Qigong and has been held on the last Saturday of April each year. The annual event is open to the general public, and begins in the earliest time zones of New Zealand at 10 am, and then participants across Oceania, Asia, Africa, Europe, North America, and South America take part, with celebrations in sixty nations and several hundred cities, ending with the final events in the last time zones of Hawaii almost an entire day later. Celebrations include mass Tai Chi Chuan and qigong exhibitions in many cities, and free classes in most participating cities.  If you are interested, please join me at this event, or join the following Tai Chi classes:

- Long Branch Community Center, Thursdays, 7:30pm (ongoing free class)
- Langley Park Comminity Center, Saturdays (registration needed)
