| April 28, 2011, 04:35 AM | 0 Comments

The Jing Ying Institute is pleased to announce that the Thirteenth Annual World Tai Chi & Qigong Day will be celebrated on Saturday, April 30th, 2011. This year, the Jing Ying Institute has arranged for free workshops and demonstrations at the Annapolis Towne Centre. The event will be next to P.F. Chang’s China Bistro from 10:00 am to noon.

The activities will begin with a Chinese Lion Dance performance by Jing Ying Institute of Arnold. There will be demonstrations of Tai Chi group forms, solo forms and weapons followed by free mini-workshops on Tai Chi and Qigong.

Tai Chi is believed to boost the immune system, slow the aging process, lower high blood pressure, relieve stress, and to improve balance and coordination. In preparation for World Tai Chi/Qi Gong day and to help promote information about Tai Chi, the Jing Ying Institute offers free classes in April at their studio in Arnold.

What is World Tai Chi Day?

On the last Saturday of April each year at 10 am, beginning in the Earth’s earliest time zone, a peaceful soothing event will unfold, and change the world forever, as it blooms around the Earth throughout the entire day–time zone by time zone. Gently and effortlessly the world will breathe together in a Tai Chi & QiGong relay of calm. We all may have experienced the soothing calm of witnessing others doing Tai Chi or QiGong; and on World Tai Chi & QiGong Day, the entire planet will have that opportunity.

World Tai Chi & QiGong Day is held in the same month as the United Nations World Healing Day and Earth Day. Tai Chi & QiGong groups form mass gatherings in public parks or other public places around the world at 10 am (local time) to exhibit Tai Chi & QiGong to the community, the media, and the world.

Some purposes for staging this historic event:

  1. To educate the world to the profound implications Tai Chi & QiGong can offer our personal, social and world health.
  2. To improve international relations by joining Tai Chi & QiGong practitioners around the world in celebration.
