Jing Ying Institute to Celebrate World Tai Chi Day

For over two decades, a special celebration of tai chi and qigong has grown across the planet. Each year, on the “last Saturday of April” – in hundreds of cities in over 80 nations – World Tai Chi events have been held in every time zone around the world. Starting at 10:00 am in the first time zone and moving in a wave around the earth as 10:00 am reaches each new time zone, groups gather to practice tai chi and qigong.

The Jing Ying Institute of Kung Fu & Tai Chi, a participant in this global event from its beginning (almost 25 years!), will be celebrating World Tai Chi Day this year on Saturday, April 29, 2023. The event will be held outside at the Severna Park Community Center, under the trees beside the small building known as Boone Station Hall, from 10:00am to 11:00am. All ages and fitness levels are welcome. If it rains, the event will be held inside Jing Ying Institute’s main facility in Arnold.

At the event, there will be demonstrations of Tai Chi followed by free mini-workshops of tai chi and qigong suitable for all levels of fitness. While not required, we ask that people register for the event at: www.JingYing.org where you can also find information about free introductory “Tai Chi & Tea” classes on May 3, 9, and 11th

Tai Chi is believed to boost the immune system, slow the aging process, lower high blood pressure, relieve stress, and improve balance and coordination. Harvard Medical School has stated that tai chi is one of the 5 “best exercises you can ever do.” Jing Ying Institute hopes to spread information about the incredible health benefits to as many people as possible through ongoing outreach.
