World Tai Chi and Qigong Day is an annual event held on the last Saturday of April. Because of this occasion, this April at the Vilnius Town Hall will be held a major international event. During it people will be seeking to capture the Baltic Tai Chi record. On April 30th residents of the country and visitors from abroad are invited to unite and become a part of this record. On this day will be recorded the most massive Tai Chi performance.
We are inviting not only Tai Chi and Qigong trainees from Lithuania and other Baltic countries but also those, who are engaged in physical culture, health practices and martial arts. We are also inviting people who haven’t heard anything about Tai Chi or Qigong and those, who want to get acquainted with this phenomenon of Chinese culture.
Tomas Lapinskas, the president of Lithuanian Sports and Traditional Wushu Federation, states that an event of this scale is organized in Baltic countries for the first time. A lot of visitors from neighbor countries are expected at this event. This event will also be an opening of a new and free Tai Chi exercise season. What is more, during the event Lithuanian and foreign Tai Chi and Qigong masters will give a performance.
No preparation for the participants is needed. There will be some experienced instructors from the Lithuanian Tai Chi Quan Association, together the participants and instructors will do eight basic Tai Chi movements.
“We are waiting for all people who are willing to participate and observe the setting of the record. Those, who want to try the movements earlier, can participate in the free lessons, organized by our instructors. These free lessons will be held on April 23th and 24th at 10 o’clock at Vilnius Town Hall square” – sais Vitalijus Veršininas, the president of Lithuanian Tai Chi Quan Association.
