World Tai Chi & Qigong Day

Portraits 28 Apr 14

It was World Tai Chi & Qigong Day on Saturday. In Festival Gardens, just outside the city centre, lots of people gathered to practice Tai Chi in beautiful surroundings by the rivers edge. My fiancé does Tai Chi. She’s really good. It’s a great thing to watch and I like the idea behind it. Focus on a single task. Be mindful of where you are now and what you are doing. It’s a good place to be by all accounts.

I met Jane at the event last year. She’s been doing Tai Chi since the mid-90s. Her friends did it, she joined in and hasn’t looked back.
