At 10:00 am on Saturday, April the 27th, the world will breathe as one! The annual World Tai Chi and Qigong Day is held every year on the last Saturday of April. Starting in New Zealand`s Time Zone at 10:00 am and ending 22 hours later in Hawaii`s time Zone, it is almost a full day of celebrating the benefits of Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong across the world.
Participants in at least 70 countries and several hundred cities will take part in this day of awareness for these two arts. Local World Tai Chi and Qigong Day events are organized by Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong schools, groups, and associations independently of the World Tai Chi and Qigong organization.
The event began originally as a celebration to the healing benefits when a group of about 200 participants gathered on the lawn of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City.
As you watch this video about the World Tai Chi and Qigong Day, enjoy the music “The Breath” in the video by Graeme Revell.
World Tai Chi and Qiqong Day events in the different cities are organized by local Tai Chi or Qigong schools. If you are interested in organizing your own World Tai Chi and Qigong Day event on April 30th or join in an existing event, you can find more information at the World Tai Chi and Qigong Day website.
