Belmont Library DemoTalks Fun & Informative

Three public demo-talks at the Belmont Library in April and May met with great interest and appreciation for the mysterious Asian exercise, that heretofore, was misunderstood to be an activity for “the old, for Asians, and for slow moving people!” At least that is what members of the audience offered with humorous candidacy, but their first hand experience with the tried and true moves gave many a persuasive push to sign up for classes. Our goal was to educate folks about Tai Chi, and promote it from its quiet presence among current exercises, but it was doubly exciting to see people recognize it for its wellness perks. Due to popular demand, Belmont Parks & Recreation are expanding classes to include a Friday morning Tai class for women, and a Mommy & Me class for a parent/child.

Ladies Spa Night

On March 12, 2011, Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory in San Francisco offered its very popular Ladies Spa…aahhh Night for the third year in a row – revitalizing, rejuvenating and pampering hundreds of happy women.

The invitation affectionately said “This event is open to all mothers, daughters, sisters, aunties, grandmothers, cousins…basically all the ladies in our SHCP community including staff, faculty and past alumni for an evening of pampering.” I gave a lecture/demo on Tai Chi while my daughter Chelsea taught Yoga. Yes, it’s all in the family. Chelsea has joined me in perpetuating her grandfather Tai Chi Master Peng’s mission to promote health. Dozens of pampered ladies listened and learned about the Asian exercises. They had so much fun, they didn’t even realize they were exercising! It doesn’t have to be grunt work. Try it, you’ll like it. For information on how you can arrange lecture/demo contact me.
