The World First Tai Chi Class finds inner peace atop the Sydney Harbour Bridge

Sunrise Tai Chi on Top of Sydney Harbour Bridge This morning, The Australian Academy of Tai Chi made history by performing Tai Chi & Qigong on the summit of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. At the break of dawn on the 2nd of May 2017, Grandmaster Gary Khor and Master Aaron Khor led 14 climbers up the steps of the famous Sydney harbour. With the sun rising up the horizon, and a soft breeze sweeping the clouds across the sky, 15 Tai Chi silhouettes high above Sydney, moved in unison to the silent rhythm of the cosmic universe. This is Tai Chi heaven, a moving meditation flowing with the heavenly chi energy of the Great Australian Outdoor. Sunrise Tai Chi Over Sydney Harbour the With beautiful golden clouds above and a bright red orange sun rising above deep blue water, 16 Tai Chi silhouettes moved in unison to the silent rhythm of the cosmic breath. It is Tai Chi heaven, a meditation in motion flowing with the wave energy of the Great Australian Outdoor.

Tai Chi on the Sydney Harbour Bridge was a experience of tranquility, peace and quiet. The feeling of Qi rising in the morning with the sun gave a wonderful feeling of Yang energy rising slowly to wake up the body. Yoga practitioners and other exercise experts joined us in this experience.  The Academy has also done classes at the Sydney opera House with up to 500 delegates of a corporate company. Delegates of the company said it gave them a boost to the start of their day making them feel energised.
