Tai-Chi in the Park with Nuit Blanche

September 29, 2018

Locals Only Youth Meagan Hong and The Heritage Wellness Society were featured at River Landing for Tai Chi in the Park.

The Heritage Wellness Society is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance longevity for seniors through participation in physical, cultural, and intellectual activities. The members are primarily seniors of Asian heritage. They led a participatory Tai-Chi performance that invited people of all-ages to learn and experience Chinese culture. Two Tai-Chi masters led audience members in Tai-Chi exercises that taught them both how to focus on their breathing as a form of meditation and how to develop greater body awareness through movement and stretching. Representatives from the Heritage Wellness Society were on-hand throughout the night to speak with passersby regarding the historical significance of Tai-Chi and the benefits it holds for participants.
