Tai Chi

Come along and take part in a Tai Chi demonstration on our Main Lawn, in conjunction with World Tai Chi Day!

Everyone is welcome to join in, whether you’re  a Tai Chi expert or have never tried it before.

The event is only on between 10.30 and 11.30, so please be sure to get here early for a space.

It’s standard admission into the Gardens, but there is no additional charge to join in with the Tai Chi.

More info about World Tai Chi Day here:

The annual April event begins in the earliest time zones of Samoa at 10 am, and then participants across Oceania, Asia, Africa, Europe, North America, and South America take part, with celebrations in eighty nations and several hundred cities, ending with the final events in the last time zones of Hawaii almost an entire day later. Celebrations include mass Tai Chi Chuan and Chi Kung exhibitions in many cities, and free classes in most participating cities.

World Tai Chi and Chi Kung Day’s stated goals are to:

Educate the world about emerging medical research revealing health benefits that Tai Chi Chuan and Chi Kung offer.

Educate about the increasing use of ancient traditional Chinese medicine.

Provide a global vision of cooperation for health & healing purposes across the world.

Thank Chinese culture for the gifts of tai chi and qigong to the world.
