Flowing into April: Tuesday morning qigong concludes on April 5th

I am happy to share some tai chi news, a special event, and updates for our online practice group community. Our qigong on Tuesday mornings will conclude on April 5th. Here is the link in case you’d like to join us. If there is enough interest, I will consider launching a new Tuesday morning qigong series in May. These have been thirty minute sessions to get the energy flowing. The form we’ve been exploring is called The Seven Precious Gestures. We start promptly at 8 AM and conclude at 8:30, EST. If you can’t make it, check out my recording of the Seven Precious Gestures Qigong Practice on YouTube.

Good news: You can now practice with Robin on YouTube!

A Special Event: World Tai Chi Day 2022 at Winslow Park in Freeport

World Tai Chi Day is always the last Saturday of April at 10 AM. This year, the last Saturday is April 30th and we will gather at Winslow Park in Freeport. Ken Ryan will be opening the event with some shared practices and a reading of the World Tai Chi Day Proclamation. I plan to be there, and I hope you’ll be able to join us! Here is a link to the official website in case you’d like to learn more about this wonderful event. As we practice together, we truly are “One World, One Breath” as we harmonize the Qi around the globe. What a wonderful way to express our solidarity with all life!

Friday “Healer Within” Tai Chi Practice Group Update

Our “Healer Within” Tai Chi Easy™ practice group will continue through the spring from 9-10 AM on Friday mornings. Here is the Zoom link:

***Please note that on Friday April 22, I will be away, My trip to New Mexico is coming up and I’m excited to explore the southwestern landscape that was so inspiring to the artist Georgia O’Keeffe and so many other creative folks. While I am away you are welcome to meet on Zoom. In fact, I encourage you to do so. One idea you might try is to take turns sharing a practice you remember. Please have fun playing with the Qi together and don’t worry about doing it right.
