2016 Great Lakes Taiji Festival Will be Held on October 29

2016五大湖地区太极观摩演示交流会将于金秋十月举行


Taiji is an ancient Chinese exercise for health and fitness. The exercise is a series of slow stretching, turning and balancing movements, often referred to as "meditation in motion". The many health benefits include stress reduction, more energy, lower blood pressure, better sleep, increased strength and balance, and overall wellness. Anyone can learn Taiji. It is perfect for any age or fitness level. There are many different styles, some more challenging than others. Taiji benefits gets better the more you practice, learn, and join the fun with others. 


The Great Lakes Taiji Association helps to promote, teach and inform the public about the cultural, health, and exercise benefits of Taiji practice, including sponsoring classes, performances, and news information  Each year The GLTA brings together many of the great lakes area Taiji clubs for an annual Taiji Performance Festival. Last year the Performance Festival featured two dozen Taiji clubs and Taiji Masters, performing many different styles of Taiji. More than 250 people joined in the Festival. This year US and Canada Great Lakes Taiji Festival will be held on October 29th from 2 pm to 5:30 pm at UM Dearborn.  The location is 4901 Evergreen Rd  Dearborn, MI 48128.
