Each year - in hundreds of cities in over 80 nations - World Tai Chi & Qigong Day events have been held on the last Saturday in April in every time zone around the world. Starting at 10:00 am in the first time zone, and moving in a wave around the earth as 10:00 am reaches each new time zone, groups will gather to practice Tai Chi and Qigong.

The Jing Ying Institute of Kung Fu & Tai Chi, a participant in this global event for nearly two decades, will be celebrating World Tai Chi & Qigong Day this year at the Severna Park Community Center, under the big tree beside the "Holy Grounds" building, If it rains, it will be held inside the building.
