World Tai Chi & Qigong (Chi Kung) Day provides teachers and schools worldwide with media resources, and medical research on Tai Chi and Qigong, to empower them to educate the public of what these ancient mind/body sciences offer their lives.
However World Tai Chi & Qigong Day's international organizing center also has been asked to present for many major health related institutions in the past.
What makes our presentations different, is we don't advocate one system, one style, or one school. We present medical research information, and introductions to Tai Chi and Qigong, and then encourage participants to use our "Find Local Classes" feature to connect with teachers and schools in their local area. Another free public health resource provided by WorldTaiChiDay.org.
We have connected a half million viewers with contact information for Tai Chi and Chi Kung teachers in their local areas worldwide.
We provide free resources to help those new to Tai Chi and Chi Kung get the most from their local classes, and we also empower teachers with helpful tools to educate their local populations.
Whether you are new to Tai Chi and Chi Kung, an avid enthusiast practitioner, or a teacher master, World Tai Chi & Qigong Day has resources to help you.
