T'ai Chi Wednesdays in the Garden—Summer/Fall 2019


Wed. Sep 4, 2019 - Wed. Dec 4, 2019 (14 weeks)
Every Wednesday from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM


Garden 3 (new location)

Join instructor Hiromi Johnson for free drop-in T'ai Chi sessions on Wednesday evenings—no experience necessary!

Class resumes September 4 in Garden 3 until late October. Garden 3 is located near the UVA chapel. If you've attended sessions in garden 1, garden 3 is just next to it as you walk further from the chapel. Rain location is Clemons 220.

It will continue indoors (date tbd) in Contemplative Room 220 located in UVA's Clemons Library through December 6.

This class will cover the basics of T'ai Chi, a martial art characterized by soft, slow flowing movements of the torso and arms coordinated with weight shifts and steps. T'ai Chi emphasizes relaxation and is a form of meditation in motion that improves balance, muscle tone, and promotes stress reduction.


Sessions are free and open to all students, faculty, staff, and Charlottesville community members and guests. Prior registration is not required.


Instructor: Hiromi Johnson

WHEN: All classes meet weekly from September 2 - December 6 and follow the UVA calendar. There are no classes October 5-8; and November 27-December 1.
