Free Event Tai Chi in the Park Goring-on-Thames 

Tai Chi in the Park 2014

Once a year the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain (TCUGB) instructors, from all over the UK, run Tai Chi in the Park events to promote Tai Chi and other internal martial arts in the local community.  Instructors, students, practitioners, friends and family will meet in various parks in Great Britain to enjoy an afternoon of Tai Chi, just as it is traditionally done in China.  

Our next event will probably be held in the park opposite the Miller of Mansfield Pub in Goring-on-Thames or in a local village hall if the weather is bad!  No booking required, just turn up, watch or take part, please bring your family and friends … and perhaps a picnic!  Everyone is welcome.  Dates and further details to be confirmed.

Certain physical injuries and conditions, particularly of the back and neck, may prevent you from practising.  If you’re in any doubt, ask your doctor if you should be attending classes and make sure I am aware of your condition.
