T'ai Chi
Contemplative Practices in Diverse Traditions, Part 5

World Tai Chi Day

T'ai chi ch'uan is an internal Chinese martial art. Medical research has found evidence that t'ai chi is helpful for improving balance and for general psychological health.

In this session, which is open to students, staff, faculty, and the general public, you'll learn the basics of t'ai chi from an expert practitioner. Dr. Bing Wei Athey created a t'ai chi course for Oxford College of Emory University and introduces t'ai chi into stress management classes at Southeastern Louisiana University on a regular basis.

Come as you are -- no prior knowledge or special equipment needed (comfortable shoes are recommended).

Prizes will be awarded to participants and food will be available thanks to the generosity of Xavier's Confucius Institute. This event is presented in conjunction with Xavier's Health Awareness Week.
