CORONAVIRUS CLASS CANCELLATIONS:

Efforts to reduce the risk of spreading the Coronavirus are in full effect throughout the area. Understandably, this means that all of our T’ai Chi classes have been temporarily suspended.

The Natick Rec Department has cancelled the Spring session. If the opportunity arises, there is a possibility that Natick will try to put together some short term programming after this passes.

The governor has issued an order that all non-essential bussinesses stay closed until May 4th. I would imagine that this will apply to all locations running T’ai Chi classes. However, I will wait to change dates listed below until I hear directly from those locations.

Updated April 4th 3:45 PM:

Here is the full list of classes that are suspended.

  • Tolles Parsons Center / Wellesley COA – classes suspended through 5/4
  • Sudbury Senior Center – classes suspended unitl further notice
  • Weston Council on Aging – classes suspended through 4/10
  • Callahan Center / Framingham COA – classes suspended through 5/4
  • MetroWest YMCA – classes suspended through 5/4 – then will review on week by week basis
  • Lumina – classes suspended through 5/4
  • Nouvelle – class suspended for time being until further notice
  • North Hill -Class suspended for the time being
  • Natick Rec / East School – Spring Session is cancelled for the time being
  • Push Hands Practice – suspended until further notice

Please note that these dates may continue to be extended out further depending on the situation. In many instances, this will impact start dates or end dates of registration class sessions. Many of these end/start/registration dates have not yet been determined. I will update information as I receive it.

For more complete information about what programs or services are still being offered and what is being shut down, please contact the organizations directly.


I want to express my gratitude and appreciation to Lou Goodman for creating this wonderful video.

What is T’ai Chi?
Tai Chi is an ancient form of Chinese exercise consisting of slow, beautiful, relaxed meditative movements. Tai Chi is sometimes described as “meditation in motion” because it promotes serenity through gentle movements connecting the mind and body. Originally developed in China for self-defense, Tai Chi has evolved into a graceful form of exercise, that’s now often used for relaxation and for developing a sense of inner calm.

Please bear with me. This site is in the beginning stages of development. And I am much more a T’ai Chi instructor than I am a Web Site creator. Over time, more content will be added including videos, class resources and a calendar of events. In the mean time, feel free to Contact Me with any questions.
