On Saturday, July 13, participants of the Ottawa Branch held a demonstration of the Taoist Tai Chi® arts at Canadensis: The Garden of Canada. This botanical garden is in the early stages of development but destined to become a key tourist attraction in Canada’s Capital Region.
Although rain had been forecast, we awoke to brilliant sunshine in the morning. Armed with hats, sunscreen and water bottles, we found some shade in one corner of a field of grass to do sets while a small group were introduced to the first three moves in the partial shade of a dragon-like sculpture.
Everyone enjoyed the experience of being in this stunning environment with so much future potential and we were certainly noticed by the passing traffic.
