TCY Update May 2023
Our winter/spring session was enlivened by several special events. Senior Instructor Pam Boyde led four one day special seminars: section two of the traditional form, the senior form, and—over two weekends—taijiquan sword. These are exceptional opportunities to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of our art.
On January 21, Tai Chi Yukon joined members of the Chinese Canadian Association of Yukon to celebrate the Year of the Rabbit. Six of our members put in hours of practice to do a well-received performance of the Essential Form as part of the festivities.
April 29, we joined our brothers and sisters worldwide to celebrate World Tai Chi & Qigong Day. About 30 people gathered in Shipyards Park to practice together then socialize over tea and the famous yin yang cookies, this year prepared by Alison. Pam handed out certificates to attendees at special seminars and confirmed that Alison Conant is now an Associate Instructor, a terrific accomplishment.
This was our 19th year of joining the flow of qi around the globe.
