Tai Chi at the Park

Find your inner calm and balance with Tai Chi in beautiful Dix Park. All fitness levels welcome! This program is free thanks to Dix Park Conservancy donors.

Tai Chi is a series of slow, continual movements from right to left, up and down, forwards and backwards, to bring you balance.  Tai Chi has been proven to lower stress and anxiety, improve mental and physical balance, and improve overall health and vitality. 

Time: 6:00 - 7:00 pm

Location: Williams Field

Tickets: Participation is limited to 48 people per class. Tickets are required. Registration opens one week in advance at 12:00 pm. Be sure you're following Dix Park on Facebook for reminders!


Due to COVID-19, Tai Chi in the Park will look a bit different. New health and safety precautions have been put in place to ensure your safety and the safety of our guides and park staff. All COVID-19 related information is listed on the Eventbrite registration page.
