Fall Benefit for Children’s Enrichment

The Fall Benefit for Children’s Enrichment program was held on Friday, October 14. Many thanks to the Charlottesville community for their generous contribution! Three children received a scholarship award for one year T’ai Chi class at the dojo.

Children who have taken classes at the dojo demonstrated some of the forms they have learned. Scholarship recipients and donors were able to meet and talk to get to know one another. Special thank you to Mrs. Tussi Kluge for offering her beautiful home for this benefit. Details will be in our November newsletter.

You can still be part of this special combination:

One generous donor + One eager child = One year of valuable T’ai Chi instruction

If you would like to help financially challenged children who are interested in taking a one year class at HTC dojo, please contact registrar@hiromitaichi.org.

Kath Weston Interview

Kath Weston, a two-year student at Hiromi T’ai Chi, answers some questions about her practice and experience with the school.

1.  How did you begin doing T’ai Chi?

I used to watch people doing T’ai Chi in the park back when I was a graduate student living in San Francisco.  The power and beauty of the practice intrigued me, so when I found out that a local YMCA was offering a class, I decided to try it. I loved it, but I didn’t pursue it at the time because I moved to another city.

Many of my classmates grumbled at having to start class so early in the morning, but I always looked forward to it. I felt it helped oil the works of my brain and the rest of my body to get ready Continue reading
