Tai Chi New Year and Australia Day demonstrations
Happy New Year from TCA instructor Team! As we turn the calendars from 2022 to 2023, we wish you and your family, friends and neighbours good health and prosperity.
Australia is the most successful multicultural society in the world. Almost half of the current population was either born overseas or has at least one parent born overseas.We come from every culture, every race, every faith, every nation but we are defined not by race, religion or culture. Instead, we pick up the best from each culture for our own good, like Tai Chi and Health Qigong, which has proven to be beneficial to both our mental and physical health. This is an excellent example of a harmonious nation embracing its diversity.
To celebrate the cultural diversity TCA will participate in the following event and we would like to invite you to join us:
2023 Australia Day Celebration
Open Day will run from 10.30am to 4.30pm on Thursday 26 January.
