The Springvale Tai Chi Group started last year in response to enquiries for classes on the weekend. We have a male and female Tai Chi Master who enjoy teaching tai chi to people from all cultural backgrounds. We meet every Sunday afternoon for a two hour class.
At first, we had only a few people coming, but the group has grown and some days we have more than 15 people. Some people come to learn tai chi for the first time, others come to practice.
We enjoy the benefits of tai chi exercise as it increases fitness, helps correct posture and helps to relieve stress.
Our highlight for the year was participating in the Screen project. We held morning tai chi classes in the Dandenong Harmony Square at the same time the Melbourne tai chi group was in the Melbourne City Square. Both groups could see each other on the big screens. Our group also performed in the Dandenong Nocturnal art show, Diversity Day concert and Harmony Festival.
