A free health and movement class on in late April will celebrate martial arts.
On April 26 Monona Parks and Recreation and a local business, Joy in Yoga, will host Monona's T'ai Chi and Qigong Day. T'ai Chi instructor Margaret Reeves will lead a free class and attendees will be offered free samples of tea and desserts.
The event runs from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Monona Community Center, Reeves said. No experience is necessary to participate and children are welcome, according to the Joy in Yoga website.
Monona's T'ai Chi day coincides with international World T'ai Chi and Qigong Day, celebrated the last Saturday in April with martial arts events worldwide, according to worldtaichiday.org.
Organizers said T'ai Chi and Qigong Day will educate the community about the health benefits of the centuries-old martial arts form.
