Taoist Tai Chi Society of
Canada Contact: Chilliwack
Branch Phone: (604) 795-4040
Description: The Chilliwack branch of
the Taoist Tai Chi Society had it beginning at the YMCA in the fall of 1990. In
the capable hands of Etta Richmond, it held it's first meeting as a satellite of
the Surrey branch in March of 1991. We started with approximately thirty members
and two dedicated volunteer instructors who drove from Surrey every Saturday for
three years to get it established. Since then, because one of the benefits is
improvement of balance, we can say that we have added hundreds of “upright
Citizens” to the population. Our branch now has a core of about ninety regular
members, nine accredited instructors and several apprentices. We instruct
beginners’ classes twice a year – in the Spring and the Fall. The club is open
at various times, 7 days a week.
Our central location is on Yale Rd. We also have satellite classes around the area including Agassiz and Yarrow. Because our dedicated staff is voluntary we can fulfill our goal of making the health giving benefits of Taoist Tai Chi affordable and available to everyone. We would be pleased to give you more information on how you can help improve your health through Tai Chi. Our instructors would also be pleased to give presentations and demonstrations. Give us a call, you are always welcome. Notes: Located at 45787 Yale Rd, Chilliwack BC, V2P 2N5
