Big Tai Chi Set for May 4
April 28, 2010
It’s time to get your chi on.
Next week, on Tuesday, May 4, the second annual Big Tai Chi will take place on the lawn in front of Thompson Hall.
Lin Lin Choy will lead the one hour class. Born in Fujian, China, Choy studied and taught in Beijing and England before moving to the United States nine years ago. She led the Big Tai Chi that took place last fall and drew about 125 participants, including President Mark Huddleston.
Tai chi is an ancient Chinese martial art believed to improve health and fitness. It is also thought to help balance one’s inner chi. It is distinguished by its slow, fluid movements that appear to be a form of meditation and moving yoga.
The Big Tai Chi takes place from 1 to 2 p.m. All are welcome. Wear comfortable and loose clothing. The rain date is May 6. To register, visit https://calendar.unh.edu//EventDetails.aspx?data=hHr80o3M7J52g4y1o8Hb5uaeCVuyWeUS8wmen4IK7BZw%2fA7LELUsJUd1UUm3GVh8.
And while you’re there, sign up for the Big Yoga, set to take place on May 12, also on the Thompson Hall lawn, from noon to 1 p.m. The class will be led by yoga instructor Claire Van Hoorn. Bring your own yoga mat or large towel.
No experience is necessary for either event.
