Wave Hill Offers Free Community Tai Chi on Saturday, September 13, 2014
This fall, come out and enjoy the benefits of Tai Chi Chuan, a gentle exercise that focuses on deep breath and movements based on images found in nature. On September 13, Wave Hill offers a free restorative session of Tai Chi Chuan led by Irving Yee, a member of the William CC Chen Tai Chi School. Held outdoors—and indoors in inclement weather—this session introduces students to the internal martial arts and promotes an awareness of its benefits. Combine it with a light lunch in The Café at Wave Hill and a leisurely stroll through the gardens. Then plan to come often this fall—and year-round—to enjoy the bounty of wellness programs at Wave Hill, including Hatha Yoga, Tai Chi and Meditation.
