I'm happy to report that all went very well today for our May 1st - Venture Outdoors First Saturday launch of the Tai Chi in the Park series. I'll be eager to see the results of your evaluation sheets. Seemed like very happy campers - left them wanting more. Only one had prior Tai Chi experience and only a couple were ever in Riverview Park and Oakmont before.
Our VO volunteer Ashley was wonderful -- and the digital photos will be great! I'm glad to know she'll be the volunteer throughout most of the series -- that is very helpful, Lora.
We had a very sweet group -- with my friend Jerry Balbot (age 82 Parkinson’s) joining in as well - for a total of 10. So nice demographics - young married couple in their 20's plus mother-in-law to a couple in their 60s, a serious runner interested in Chi Running and Chi Walking, a stressed out Mom of three (her husband arranged for her to attend as part of his entire weekend birthday celebration package for her !!!), and two additional work stressed out women in their 40's -50's.
