World T’ai Chi Day
Still Mountain has been hosting World T’ai Chi Day in Pittsburgh since 2003 and was recognized in 2007 by Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and the City of Pittsburgh for being a community leader and promoting T’ai Chi throughout Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania.
Mayor Ravenstahl offered a proclamation making the final Saturday of April Pittsburgh’s official World T’ai Chi Day as sponsored by Still Mountain.
The day always includes a wide-range of exercises from those for health, flexibility, and quality of life. The idea behind Still Mountain’s sponsorship of World T’ai Chi Day is to be true to the essence of T’ai Chi as a means to create harmony, balance, and a sense of equanimity. The workshops are offered in the spirit of helping all become healthier, happier, and more personally fulfilled.
World T’ai Chi Day takes place on the last Saturday of April from 10:00-12:00, and is usually held at Bird Park in Mt. Lebanon, PA. Check the Events/Workshop page for the most recent details concerning the day.
All World T’ai Chi Day events are free and open to the public. No previous experience with T’ai Chi is required.
