Classes Held Outdoors, Weather Permitting, Tuesdays and Saturdays

Natural Awakenings News: Classes Held Outdoors, Weather Permitting, Tuesdays and Saturdays

Qth warmer weather comes the chance to begin having tai chi classes at VFW Park in Royal Oak again. Tuesday classes are normally held at 6 p.m. but can be taught as early as 5 p.m. for more warmth and light. On Saturday mornings, classes are usually held at 9:30 a.m., though they can start later in the morning at the park for more comfortable weather. Class location (Zoom or park) and time will usually be announced the day before. True Tai Chi Chuan instructor Holly Malloy has been practicing tai chi since 1993 and teaching it since 2011.

“When the weather is consistently warmer, the variability will lessen. Hopefully in a couple of months, True Tai Chi Chuan will have found a new inside home and class times will be more permanent,” Malloy says. “Due to strict mandates in 2020, the previous home of our classes was dislodged. We did a combination of Zoom and park classes last year to adapt and overcome. I can’t wait to start teaching in person, again. There is only so much that can be taught on two-dimensional Zoom.”

The first class is free, and the first month of classes is $39.

Classes will be held on Zoom or at 700 S. Campbell Rd., Royal Oak, on the corner of Campbell and E. Lincoln. For more information, call Holly Malloy at 248-709-1599 or visit
