Introduction to Tai Chi
With Allie Wang
01.00pm on Saturday 22 May in the Church
Mount Eden Village Centre, 449 Mount Eden Road
Tai Chi is a relaxing low-impact workout that cultivates the connection between mind and body. The gentle flowing movements improve wellbeing and focus.
The use of balance and coordination combined with careful breathing practice will help you engage with your body from top to toe.
Despite its mellow movements, Tai Chi is a traditional martial art, and its ability to clear and refresh the mind is a testament to its long history and significance.
A Tai Chi class leaves you feeling energised and ready to face the world – with gently exercised joints and muscles to support you through whatever the day may bring.
Allie Wang, an immigrant from China, has many years of experience in teaching Tai Chi in New Zealand. Allie is an instructor at New Zealand Tai Chi and Martial Arts Association and she is the Tai Chi instructor for the Epsom Chinese Association.
Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes (with non-marking soles).
The Epsom Chinese Association was founded in 2007 with a group of Chinese residents coming together at Melville Park in Epsom doing daily morning exercise together. The aim is to integrate Chinese and New Zealand culture in a supportive environment. The Epsom Chinese Association has meetings twice a week at the Epsom Baptist Church doing Tai Chi, Chinese line dancing, folk dances, singing and playing table tennis. The Epsom Chinese Association also collaborates with the Chinese Conservation Education Trust to host the Epsom Sewing Repair Cafe at the Kimberley Room (Epsom).
