Free tai chi

The FREE summer tai chi and qigong sessions in Cornwall Park finished at the end of March 2024. Hopefully, there’ll be more in the summer of 2025.

Sign up for my free monthly newsletter to get an early ‘heads up’ when there’ll be more free sessions of tai chi and qigong.

Details of the sessions in January – March 2024:

FREE tai chi and qigong sessions with Jocelyn Watkin and/or another instructor from Kia Ora Tai Chi were held (weather dependent) in Cornwall Park every Sunday morning, 9am, and Tuesday evening, 6pm. They started on Sunday 21 January and finished on Tuesday 26 March 2024.

These sessions were free for anyone and are suitable for all ages and abilities. Beginners will be very welcome.

I can’t wait to see everyone again who attended in previous years and also to meet anyone new, who would love to try tai chi and qigong this summer.

A big thank you to founder of the park, Sir John Logan Campbell, for his gift of Cornwall Park to the people of Auckland. Also, huge thanks to the Cornwall Park Trust Board, which administers his legacy and provides funding for these sessions so you can attend for free.
