World T’ai Chi & Qigong Day April 30
On Saturday, April 30 practitioners of T’ai Chi and Qigong will gather on the Milford Green to celebrate the 12th Annual World T’ai Chi & Qigong Day. Teachers and students from schools throughout Fairfield and New Haven counties will join with others in 50 states and 65 nations on 6 continents to form a wave of healing breath around the world. The public is invited to discover a variety of T’ai Chi and Qigong forms from 10 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and experience the power of “qi” (energy).
Some of the schools offering demonstrations are Aiping Cheng T’ai Chi & Qigong School of Orange; Char Marie, L.Ac., Acupuncture and Qigong Healing of Milford; Qi & Tea of Milford; The Flowing Motion of Fairfield and Bridgeport; Qigong for Health of Fairfield; and Wudang T’ai Chi of Stamford. “World T’ai Chi & Qigong Day provides a unique opportunity to share the beauty and healing power of a variety of styles of ancient Chinese healing and martial art practices,” stated Lamont Thomas, a member of the committee organizing the local festivities. “There will be everything from traditional T’ai Chi Chuan, Integral Qigong and T’ai Chi for Kids to lesser known forms of Qigong, ancient practices that promote health, mental focus and vitality.” Come enjoy the day’s good energy!
