T'ai Chi Chih in the Gardens

Fridays at 11:00AM (May, July, and September)
on the MCBG Event Lawn

Please note, rain cancels the class. Please check here for updates.

Join Dyana Sangraal for mindful moving meditation at the Botanical Gardens. T'ai Chi Chih's gentle flowing movements involve no physical contact but rather emphasize a soft, graceful continuity in motion. Each class features 20 easy-to-learn flowing movements. It offers endless opportunities for vibrant health and well-being at any age and physical condition. 

Listen to the birds chirp and the waves crash. Calm your heart. Improve breathing and balance. Regain energy and vitality. Experience peace and joy while having fun and being outdoors!

Dyana Sangraal has been practicing and teaching T'ai Chi Chih since she was accredited in 1990 by the originator of the form, Justin Stone. Her practice is enhanced by her love of nature and spending long periods of time on solo vision quests. Other modalities of her study and experience of Chi (life force/vibration) include Reiki, Feng Shui and Personal Color enhancement. She is honored to share T'ai Chi Chih as it has enriched and transformed her life and the lives of her students in so many positive ways.
