World Tai Chi Day

On Saturday 28th April 2018 at The Italian Gardens, Weston Super Mare we celebrated World Tai Chi and Qigong day with over 100 people taking part in a mass Tai Chi session.

Our event was one of hundreds taking place globally and we organised it in conjuction with Cheryl Mountford of Bubbling Springs Tai Chi, to celebrate the benefits of Tai Chi and in a bid to encourage Weston’s older residents to become more active.

Tai Chi is just one of the many different types of sessions we organise throughout the area.
