World Tai Chi and Qigong Day Celebration in Camden
Apr 01, 2014 08:49PM
The 16th annual World Tai Chi and Qigong Day, an international event to promote public awareness and knowledge of the internal healing arts practices, will be celebrated from 9 a.m. to noon, April 26, at the Walt Whitman Arts Center, in Camden.
This day begins at 10 a.m. in New Zealand and moves through every time zone around the world; it was honored in 70 countries in 2012 and 80 nations in 2013. Free and open to the public, the event enables even people that have never done tai chi to gather in parks, pavilions and gyms and learn a short routine with others. Experienced practitioners will practice their own routines collectively. After the initial practice, teachers often perform more advance forms, answer questions and provide registration sheets for those interested in classes.
Tai chi and qigong are geared toward well-being, the topic of this year’s event, so Camden’s wellness and health professionals and community organizations are encouraged to exhibit at this event.
Location: 101 Cooper St., Camden. To reserve an exhibitor table or receive more information, call 856-993-6613 or visit WorldTaiChiDay.org.
