Mrs Bao is the founder of ‘Bao’s Lung Fei Tai Chi’ (BLFTC). In 1992 Mrs Bao created her sequence of 10 tai chi form for her own students. This was before the official one was created in China in 1999. Mrs Bao realised the need in the West for a shorter set of forms for beginners as up until then the shortest form was the famous 24 forms, created in 1956 by Master Li Tanji’, nicknamed ‘Lungfei’ from whom our tai chi club gets its name.

* Special FREE event on Saturday 28 April 2018 in Yeovil*

‘World Tai Chi & Qigong Day’ is an annual world event that starts in New Zealand and works round the different time zones to finish in Hawaii. This event takes place on the last Saturday of April each year, between 10 am and 11 am.

World Tai Chi & Qigong Day has been happening all over the world in at least sixty different countries since 1999, when tai chi and qigong groups everywhere go outdoors in their time zone and welcome anyone to join them to take part in tai chi, qigong and shibashi practice for FREE.

Bao’s Lung Fei Tai Chi will be celebrated in the heart of Yeovil on the 29 April and passers-by are welcomed to join in. Local members of our club will be practising outdoors that Saturday between 10 and 11 am in the grounds of St

John The Baptist Church, Church street, in the centre of Yeovil, Somerset (BA20 1HE) and anyone interested in tai chi, qigong and shibashi are invited to take part if they wish to join in.

World Tai Chi & Qigong Day is celebrating promoting a wider awareness of the great health benefits experienced by those practising these gentle flowing exercises. Tai chi, qigong and shibashi is practised in group sessions by millions of people all over the world. It combines deep slow breathing with relaxation and postures that flow from one to another through slow movements.

Tai chi originated in China primarily as a martial art fighting system about 500 years ago; however it is now mostly practised as a spiritual and physical fitness system. Tai chi is quite different from other forms of workout as it benefits the practitioner without the strenuous physical demands on the body required by other sports.

I originally started tai chi out of curiosity and soon discovered through its practice with the right teachers, that I benefited on so many levels in mind, body & spirit that I trained to become a tai chi teacher myself to bring awareness of the wonderful benefits I experience to others,” says Zabeth Reid, head-coach of Bao’s Lung Fei Tai Chi.
