Summer 2016 - Free Classes
The six week free summer Tai Chi classes will be conducted on Thursday mornings, 7:30 to 8:30 AM, beginning July 14, 2016. The classes will be held outdoors in the far parking lot of the Quarterpath Recreation Center. Students will learn the Yang Introductory Form of Tai Chi ( Nine Movements). The classes will be held "rain or shine"; in the event of inclement weather the classes will be held inside the main building. No prior registration is required. You can read more about it in this VA Gazette article.
