Sat. outdoors

Outdoors

Rain or Shine

We meet outdoors April 1, 2017,
through October 28, 2017.

We will move indoors on the first Saturday in November;
directions to the indoor location will be posted after the last Saturday in October.

This Saturday, April 1, 2017,
is our first outdoor practice of the year
and, thus, it is "Hat Day."
Whimsical hats are strongly encouraged.

To All Saturday Morning Tai Chi Friends

Welcome.

As you get in your car to head to the gym,
remember “Seatbelt Tai Chi”,
i.e., check yourself with the TC principles,
begin to deepen your breath, etc.

Please be sure to arrive at least five minutes early.

This is a silent practice.
Moving as one is a main idea.
Follow the leader and the front row.

After each set of three rounds,
we stand for a minute or two of qi gong.
Please remain quiet and still
and sink your mind and breath to your center.

If you are late,
please respect the group energy
and wait for the right moment to join the group.
Wait for the break in the action
when the group is changing position on the floor
and changing leaders and then quietly join.

Thanks.
