Free tai chi at Cornwall Park’s “Park Life” event


Kia Ora Tai Chi has partnered with Cornwall Park to offer four FREE tai chi lessons at their Park Life event, which will be held on Saturday 30 March, 11am – 4pm.  (If wet, the event will be held on Saturday 6 April).

The tai chi sessions will be:

  • 11 – 11.45am: Tai chi for beginners – Learn easy, flowing steps of this ancient Chinese martial art. Low impact, fun, family-friendly and ideal for all age groups. (Note: This will be the same tai chi that we taught at the “Summer Tai Chi in Cornwall Park” sessions.)
  • 12 – 12.45pm: Yang-style tai chi – Join in to do the 24-step and combined 42-step forms.  It is fun to watch or jump in and have a go in the spirit of “Let’s play tai chi together”.
  • 2 – 2.45pm: Tai chi as moving meditation – Learn how to relax and de-stress with special tai chi movements. Once learned you can do these anytime, anywhere. Gentle on your joints and ideal for beginners of all ages.
  • 3 – 3.45pm: Tai chi for beginners – Learn easy, flowing steps of this ancient Chinese martial art. Low impact, fun, family-friendly and ideal for all age groups. (Note: This will be a repeat of the 11 – 11.45am session.)

Location: Same as for “Summer Tai Chi in Cornwall Park”. Under the big trees on the left-hand-side of Pohutukawa Drive (as you come up from Greenlane Road). Look for the tai chi signs and the Kia Ora Tai Chi team wearing red shirts.

What to wear:

  • Comfy clothes and shoes
  • A sun hat, sun block and insect repellent
  • Bring a sweatshirt or jacket in case of cool weather. Please bring a water bottle, too.

No need to RSVP. Just come along and join in with your friends and family. A big thank you to the Cornwall Park Trust Board for funding these sessions so everyone can enjoy learning tai chi for free.
