One hundred members and guests celebrated the grand opening of new premises for the Melbourne branch in Australia, on Saturday 11 February 2012 at 54A Moreland Road, Brunswick.  The festivities included a lion dance, firecrackers, Tai Chi demonstration, speeches and a delicious afternoon tea.

Distinguished guests included: Mr Oscar Yildiz – Moreland City Councillor, Ms Jane Garret –  State Member for Brunswick, and Mr Kelvin Thomson –  Federal Member for Wills.

The Melbourne branch has been going since 2001.  The new leased premises have 300 square metres of floor space and amazingly it has no pillars, so it is a wonderful practice area for the Taoist Tai Chi™ arts of health. The local members are delighted to have a permanent location where volunteer instructors can offer more classes for people to enjoy the many benefits of Tai Chi.  The premises will also serve as a centre for workshops attended by members from around the region.

Earlier in the day there was a half-day Tai Chi intensive which enabled everyone to try out the practice area.  Yup, you can do a long row of Parting Wild Horses Mane in that hall!
