Try T'ai Chi and Chi Kung Saturday with Peaceful Dragon School at Ann Arbor Summer Festival
The idea of T’ai Chi generally conjures up images of old Chinese people exercising slowly, very slowly, in the park. However, T’ai Chi has a lot to offer people of all races and all ages.
This Saturday from 5-6 p.m., everyone can try T’ai Chi and Chi Kung: Body, Mind, and Energy Mechanics for Stress Reduction with Peaceful Dragon School at the Ann Arbor Summer Festival in a different kind of happy hour. Meet on the lawn in front of Power Center, east of Rackham Graduate School, for a free one-hour T'ai Chi workout.
Master Wasentha Young founded her Ann Arbor-based Peaceful Dragon School of T’ai Chi Ch’uan and Chi Kung in 1990. Her teaching emphasizes the notions of peace; harmony; integrating body, mind, and spirit; and how such integration affects people’s health and lives. She has also developed stress reduction programs for corporations, health institutions, religious organizations. She is well-regarded as a teacher, and one of the coolest, calmest people.
