A Fun World Tai Chi and Qigong Day 2013 Celebration!

Yesterday was "World Tai Chi and Qigong Day" (WTCQD), a day where people all over the world gather at 10:00am in there time zones to practice Tai Chi, share ideas and skills, and teach others about these amazing arts.  In Pine Grove, CA at the KSW Karate Dojo we celebrated WTCQD with our Amador County community and enjoyed the incredible talent and knowledge of Sensei Rodney Peoples, the head Sensei and KSW Karate, as he led us through a ten-step breathing and energy cultivation exercise;  the sweet spirited, relaxing and flowing Tai Chi movements taught by the wonderful Marilyn Nutter, Tai Chi instructor in Sutter Creek; awesome chair massages from the talented Andrea Newman, the massage therapist at KSW Karate; and the fun and informative Tai Chi and Qigong workshops led by Shifu Andrew Plitt.

There was also free ice cream available to those who attended workshops, and we had smoothies for lunch made from the Pure Trim Wellness Shakes to keep everyone energized and ready for more celebration.

Unfortunately we did not take very many pictures of this event, but we will post the pictures we did take; mostly between workshops.  The good news is, we took a lot of video of the workshops and we will be posting video segments in the very near future.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this event happen and to everyone who attended!  You all made this "World Tai Chi and Qigong Day" an incredibly fun, enjoyable and memorable event!

This is nearly everyone who attended, gathered with our celebration poster made by Samantha Hoarau. :)

(Awesome workshop, by the way!)

 And, of course, the fun-stance photo.  :)

We hope you all enjoyed this event as much as we did and, if you were not able to attend this year, we hope you will join our celebration next year on April 26, 2014.  Check back soon for video clips and check out our Workshops and Seminars page for upcoming events.
