Waterfront Botanical Gardens brings a new series to our Wellness Program with Tai Ji at the Gardens. Also written as ‘Tai Chi’, this low-impact, slow-motion exercise is often described as “meditation in motion.” From the air-conditioned comfort of inside the Graeser Family Education Center, enjoy a sense of being outdoors in the Gardens with views out of the floor-to-ceiling windows. Don’t worry about humidity, mosquitoes, or rain this July!
The Chen style of Tai Ji is for all participant levels and will be practiced during the hour-long, early evening session. The Chen style has a mixture of fast and slow, and hard and soft movements. Grand Master Mingye Ding will lead, with assistance from Yueling Zhang.
Wear comfortable, loose clothing that will not restrict your range of motion. You may practice barefoot or in lightweight shoes with thin soles that allow you to feel the floor (running shoes are unsuitable).
We will follow social-distancing and supply lightweight, disposable facemasks.
Although we are unable to refund registration fees in the case of cancellation by the purchaser, the paid registration can be transferred to another student. In this case, please notify Allison Whitehouse at email@example.com or 502-276-5404 with the name of who will attend in your place. Multi-event series cannot be transferred. In the event that Waterfront Botanical Gardens cancels a class for any reason (e.g. low enrollment, instructor unavailability, natural hazard, etc.), we will attempt to reschedule the class or event. If there is no reschedule, the purchaser will be issued a full refund. Refunds are issued by check only. Beargrass Canoe Tours have a different policy with no refunds under any circumstance because of river and weather volatility.
In the event of an emergency cancellation, the Gardens will contact registered students with a cancellation notice (always provide/maintain a current email address and phone number so that we may notify you of an emergency or cancellation). The Gardens will attempt to reschedule classes cancelled due to an emergency event if possible.
