World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Celebration at Health By Design
Mar 29, 2013 12:54AM
Health By Design Natural Clinic, in Leola will host a World Tai Chi & Qigong Day celebration from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m., April 27. This year’s free event will be facilitated by Mark R. Reinhart, president of the National Qigong Association, and is open to everyone, regardless of age or fitness level.
From its creation by Bill Douglass, in Kansas City, Missouri, 15 years ago, the event has evolved into a worldwide celebration in more than 65 countries. Beginning at 10 a.m. in all time zones on the last Saturday of April, people gather to perform t’ai chi and qigong. Douglass’ vision for the day is to unite the world in breath and energy in order to create a wave of peace, health and well-being, expressing the idea, “One world, one breath.”
After the morning gathering, Reinhart will teach two Sun Style Tai Chi workshops: Intro to Sun Style 31 Form will be held from 10:45 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and Sun Style 73 Form, from noon to 1 p.m.
Cost for the workshops: $25 individually or $40 for both. Location: 12 Keystone Ct., Leola. For more information and to RSVP (required to reserve space), call 717-556-8103 or email I[email protected]
