Friends, I care about your health (and mine)
and so I feel compelled to say the following.
Do not trust what any politician says
about reopening (or unproven treatments).
Listen instead to the scientists and health care experts.
Be well, take good care and 
err on the side of caution.

Our school is closed until further notice.

All classes and practices

(Chevy Chase, Great Falls, Arlington and McLean)  

are canceled for now.

Makeup classes will be scheduled soon.
Check back here often.

Free Saturday Tai Chi
Is Canceled For Now.


 Our June 4 – 7 retreat
has been rescheduled
for November 5 – 8, 2020.

Meanwhile, remember, your Tai Chi
helps to build your immune system and to ameliorate stress.

 

Suggestions for home practice during this difficult time

Harvard Health:

National Institutes of Health;
National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health:

Mayo Clinic;

(Even though, alas, they do not use
the correct pronunciation of Tai Chi, i.e., “Tie Jee”.)

Inclement Weather?
If weather forces cancellation of a class (or Sat. practice),
a cancellation notice will be posted on this home page
at least an hour or two before class time,
so please check before leaving to come to class.

(We do not necessarily follow the school or government closing schedules.
If you cannot access the site, please call the office if you have a question.
Any cancelled classes will be made up by adding a class on at the end of the term.)

Box turtles are so named because they are the only turtle
able to enclose itself completely for protection.
