With Stage 3 reopening, an outdoor event with Taiji exercises will be followed by a Paint & Sell, with members of the Parkway Artists Guild, in spacious McFarland Park, this Friday, July 31, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Yimlei Molly Yep, a certified TaijiFit instructor will lead a free Taiji class in the morning. All are welcome to this 40-minute Taiji continuous flow class for health and fitness. Mirroring the instructor for whole body movements will provide immediate benefits, including feeling the internal healing Qi to all the organs. Taiji has been proven to improve posture, balance, flexibility and strength, says Yep. The Taiji class will start at 11:15 a.m.
After lunch, Parkway Artists Guild members will participate in the Paint & Sell near McFarland House, on the Niagara River Parkway.
