World Tai Chi and Qigong Day Celebration

April 29, 2017, 9:30 – 11:30 am

People of all ages are invited to “join the global wave of healing energy” during Akron’s participation in World Tai Chi and Qigong Day 2017. The free community wellness event will take place in the museum’s Bud and Susie Rogers Garden and will be led by NG Energy Founder and Certified Tai Chi and Qigong Instructor Nancy Gardner. The event will be part of a global live-feed streaming video of Tai Chi and Qigong Day demonstrations around the world.

Now in its ninth year, this free event features demonstrations, audience participation and a special segment for kids. The core of this community wellness program is to introduce community members to breathing and movement techniques that will boost energy, improve balance and help reduce and manage stress. Akron’s two-hour program is suitable for adults of all ages and physical abilities, and children old enough to follow along.

Participants are asked to bring lawn chairs for this outdoor event.
