Get into the tai chi zone.
World Tai Chi &Qigong Day is April 30 and there will be a global “healing wave” celebration of the Chinese exercises that promote calm and wellness.
Beginning in New Zealand, the wave will spread time zone by time zone across hundreds of cities in dozens of countries in six continents. The mass exhibitions are being held in public places to educate people about the benefits of tai chi and qigong, which are also being used in hospitals, businesses, prisons and schools to add an element of calm to a hectic world.
Want to be part of the wave or watch? The free event is at 10 a.m. April 30 at McCollum Park, 600 128th St. SE, Everett. For more, go to www.worldtaichiday.org.
