in Events, Tai Chi

Tai Chi Group collecting the Qi

2012 carnival was another Great Tai Chi Success.

I had hoped that we would be joined by children who i teach Tai Chi and who were going to demonstrate the Eight Section Qigong Exercises (Ba-Duan-Jin) but unfortunately due to the uncertainty of the weather on the day, this was not to be. However the sun did shine upon our demonstration which was accompanied (suprise/suprise) throughout the demonstration by wonderful sunshine. On the drive to the event i did have thoughts about our time slot being too late in the day, but as it turned out the allocated time slot on this occasion worked in our favour, any earlier and we would have had to cancel the demonstration due to some heavy down falls of rain. So all turned out well on the Tai Chi front. The team comprised of twelve students who demonstrated the 18 Tai Chi Qigong exercise movements (Shibashi) followed by demonstrating Ba-Duan-Jin, then just to round things off repeated the Shibashi but with a shorter performance, which nicely fullfilled the time slot which we had planned.
