Austin celebrates World Tai Chi & Qigong Day

Tuesday, April 25, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

This weekend Austin will be just one participant in the worldwide Tai Chi & Quigong Day. More than 80 countries across the world take the day to “observe peace, health and the positive energy associated with” the Chinese martial arts. On Saturday, April 29, residents can take part in the festivities locally at the Asian American Resource Center, 8401 Cameron Road, from 9 a.m. until noon on the great lawn. The center is hosting a free event with instructors available to answer questions and demonstrate moves. They promise the mass tai chi at 10 a.m. will “send waves of energy to the next time zone,” which sounds pretty intense, if you ask us. Learn more on the World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Central Texas Facebook page.
