Tai Chi, the ancient martial art, is practised in outdoor spaces at the start of the day daily around the world, and for the first time today a Tai Chi event was held atop Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Grand Master Gary Khor and Master Aaron Khor, of the Australian Academy of Tai Chi and Qigong, led a group of 14 climbers, 134-metres above the waking city, through several serene Tai Chi sequences.
The group – which included Tai Chi instructors and students, as well as health and fitness influencers – were securely attached to the Masters as they participated in the Tai Chi moves.
Grand Master Khor said: “Tai Chi is a mind-body healing art which refreshes and energises your whole being. Tai Chi is a mindful moving meditation which relaxes your body, focus your mind, and lift your spirit. Just like this uplifting feeling on top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge on this beautiful morning.
“Tai Chi brings together people of all ages and all cultures to cultivate good health, fitness, relaxation and the ability to move through life skilfully. The tranquillity found at the summit of the Sydney Harbour Bridge at dawn, provided a perfect and beautiful setting for our sequences.”
BridgeClimb hosted the event on the famous coat-hanger, itself a symbol of bringing people together, to celebrate multiculturalism through the Chinese Martial Art.
