Summer Practice, Downtown Whitehorse Wharf
We are now done with classes but don't despair, we can still practice together, OUTDOORS. From Thursday, May 20 we will have a weekly informal practice on the downtown wharf at the end of Main Street. These are not lessons but an opportunity to practice with whoever is in town and available at the time.
Thursdays, May 20th to August 26th.
Time: 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.
No Class Registrations until Sept. 2021
No new classes will be offered until the fall. Check back late summer for updates to our schedule.
Given that tai chi is an excellent way to reduce stress and boost immunity, we feel that it’s more important than ever that people be encouraged to continue or begin regular tai chi practice. There are several excellent online resources to help with your own practice.
