Start the new year on a balanced note — with Tai Chi in a garden!
Tai Chi Chuan is a one of a kind health and mindfulness practice that draws from thousands of years of history and tradition. Involving a series of gentle movements and simple postures which are designed to improve coordination, balance and relieve stress, Tai Chi is suitable for all ages and fitness levels.
The Dr. Sun Yai-Sen Classical Chinese Garden is offering drop-in Tai Chi classes on Sundays, included in your regular admission.
