World Tai Chi Day is practiced the world over on the last Saturday of April each year. People meet at 10:00am in their local time zone.
World Tai Chi Day is open to anyone who has an interest in Tai Chi. This year we have two instructors to introduce you to different exercises and aspects of Tai Chi. Participants will be able to take a short 25 minute class from each teacher.
Chris Netto has over 20 years of teaching experience in a variety of venues and to people of various skills and cognition. Since Covid-19 she has been teaching Tai Chi for Health, Balance and Well being on Zoom only. She will introduce Dr. Paul Lam's Tai Chi for Health programs to participants, demonstrate the Tai Chi for Arthritis (TCA) program and teach the first basic six movements of it.
Michel Czehatowski is the instructor for Redding Tai Chi. He teaches classes at Unity Church and through the Shasta College Community Education program. He will discuss and demonstrate the underlying movement principles of Tai Chi and lead the group through the Tai Chi Long Form.
10:00am Welcome and Orientation
10:10-11:15am Group sessions. Participants will break up into two groups. One with each instructor. At the end of the 25 minute presentation everyone will rotate to a new teacher and session.
11:20am - 12 noon. At the end of the sessions people can join their teacher of choice for another half hour of Tai Chi learning and practice.
12 noon - Bring your lunch and enjoy the park!
We will also be selling Redding Tai Chi T-shirts ($20.00) to raise money for the Redding Tai Chi Meditation Garden Project.
World Tai Chi Day is a free event but to help defray costs donations are appreciated.
