People from around the world will come to Toronto to celebrate 45 years of Taoist Tai Chi® practice together.
Spectacular photo opportunities will be available as Taoist Tai Chi® are practiced by hundreds of people together, dragons dance, and members of the public try tai chi for the first time. You are also welcome to film one of your reporters trying one of our “give tai chi a go” sessions.
Our theme Better Balance through Taoist Tai Chi® Practice is founded in the Taoist understanding of good health as the refined balance of the whole person. There is no separation between spirit, mind and body. Taoist Tai Chi® practice works towards this aim of complete balance.
The Harvard Medical School’s publication ‘The health benefits of tai chi‘ is clear that “Tai Chi improves balance and … reduces falls (as) the ability to sense … one’s body in space ̶ declines with age. … Fear of falling can make you more likely to fall“.
Taoist Tai Chi®arts are a moving meditation which enhances balance with its emphasis on awareness, stillness and reduction of daily life stresses and anxieties.
