Tai Chi classes re­turn

Te Puke Times - - NEWS -

The gen­tle art of Tai Chi will once again grace Te Puke Me­mo­rial Hall from next month.

The Taoist Tai Chi So­ci­ety of New Zealand’s Te Puke classes had de­canted to the Lyceum Club dur­ing the hall’s clo­sure for re­fur­bish­ment, but next month they will be back with the re­turn marked by a spe­cial one-day work­shop for mem­bers on June 8. Classes will start on June 11.

“We thank the Lyceum Club of Te Puke for host­ing our classes dur­ing the hall re­fur­bish­ment,” says spokesman Paul Harker. “Now we al­low the Lyceum Club to have their space, and not have us reg­u­larly re­ar­range their hall fur­ni­ture.”

Classes in Taoist Tai Chi have been taught in Te Puke for 20 years, in New Zealand for 28 years, and around the world for 48 years. Classes are avail­able to all.

“We are pleased to be back in the Me­mo­rial Hall’s spa­cious and ac­ces­si­ble Pioneer room, where we do not have to re­move and re­place fur­ni­ture at each class, and where we can set up our gear in on­site stor­age.”

Be­gin­ner classes are open to all on Mon­day morn­ings and Tues­day evenings.

“Soon we will of­fer con­tin­u­ing classes on Mon­day morn­ings, as we do on Tues­day evenings. We are thank­ful for the room space, the ac­cess to kitchen, for the park­ing, and the high pro­file Te Puke Me­mo­rial hall of­fers.”

Learn­ing the Taoist Tai Chi arts is a life­time process.

“As a par­tic­i­pant, you are wel­come to at­tend as of­ten as you would like at any of our lo­ca­tions. You are wel­come to be­come in­volved as a vol­un­teer, at­tend so­cial events, and par­tic­i­pate in spe­cial pro­grammes of­fered lo­cally and around the world.”

Thou­sands of peo­ple have ben­e­fited from the Taoist Tai Chi arts and ac­cred­ited vol­un­teers in­struct all classes.

The Taoist Tai Chi So­ci­ety of New Zealand is a regis­tered char­ity, run by vol­un­teers. Its mis­sion is to help peo­ple.

“We pro­mote the prin­ci­ple of all cul­tures and reli­gions mov­ing to­gether in har­mony. In­di­vid­u­als of all back­grounds and be­liefs are wel­come to prac­tise the Taoist Tai Chi arts.”

Taoist Tai Chi classes re­sume at Te Puke Me­mo­rial Hall next month.
