FREE Tai Chi Saturdays!
Join IOM for FREE tai chi sessions on Saturdays at Bull Creek Park.
Sessions start at 8:30 am at the concrete area on the south side of the creek (Lakewood Dr. south of the creek and north of Lakemoore Dr.).
Dr. Rey Ximenes leads yang style tai chi, qigong, and sword-based tai chi forms. No worries if you don't have a sword, we usually take a few extras. Yardsticks or shorter jamb rods also make decent swords.
Everyone, regardless of skill level, is welcome.
Come join us, almost every Saturday for a peaceful, yet empowering start to your weekend!

Join IOM as well as participants from all the tai chi groups in the Austin area at World Tai Chi Day! On Saturday, April 29, groups from all around the world will perform tai chi at 10:00 local time, thus creating 24 global hours of tai chi. Austin's chapter will occur at the Asian American Resource Center located at 8401 Cameron Rd. We recommend that attendees arrive around 9:00 to check in and visit with participants who practice varying styles of tai chi. If you wish to attend and have problems locating our group, please call (512) 599-9313 and we will be happy to assist you.
