Calm Chicago has a plan for World Tai Chi Day right here in sweet home Chicago! I’ll be working with friends to organize the details, set up a special FB group as a center for all participants with the who, what, where, when, why and how!
We’re looking for 100′s of people … who have never, always, sometimes, occasionally done tai chi (taiji) or qigong or anyone who thinks doing some fun movement with a bunch of friends with great big deep breaths out in the fine spring day sounds like fun.
If you’re wondering what the heck is tai chi or taiji or qigong anyway and how the heck do you say that? This next bit is for you. Sounds like: Tie – chee (like the chee in cheese) and ditto for chee- gong. Both are ways of getting your body and breath working together with graceful motion that makes you feel great all over. Plus, tai chi helps you reduce stress, focus the mind and stay very physically healthy. And, anyone can do it. You don’t have to be a star athlete. You can be old, young, in between, able to run miles or be in a wheel chair.
It’s gonna be awesome! Look for info soon through this blog, messaging and emails. All I can say right now is that it’s going to be in downtown Chicago on April 30. Mark your calendars!
