The Confucius Institute in Bradley Hall will lead informal Taichi sessions in the Bradley courtyard. Starting on Tuesday February 28th, at 10:00 a.m., Confucius Institute Professor Zhou Yufang, who has won national prizes in Taichi in China, will be leading 10 minutes of Taichi exercises in the courtyard outside OIA, every Tuesday and Thursday. All you need is comfortable shoes for this exercise.
Taichi is a gentle version of Chinese martial arts, and is part of the rich cultural heritage of China. Recent research has proven that Taichi is not only good physical exercise, but that it also combats stress. It will boost the immune system and help with general wellbeing . For this reason, Chinese communities often engage in collective Taichi in the mornings, as they get ready to face the day.
Students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate.
