I will be partnering with the Pacific Bonsai Museum to present a wonderful evening of Taichi and Bonsai. Upon arrival, you’ll walk a ⅓ mile wooded trail that will transport you from the everyday and deliver you to the threshold of the magical. You’ll breathe woodsy air and look up to find towering conifers all around as you stroll through the exquisite bonsai collection and prepare your mind for the taichi class. The approximately 60-minute class will cover fundamental taichi principles and basic taichi movements. Post-class, you’ll refresh yourself with tea, kombucha and water while the evening light streams through the trees around you.
This event will involve active participation so please wear loose, comfortable clothing.
