UW-Whitewater Early Childhood Conference 4/9/11

This year’s Tai Chi Animal Frolics workshops at the annual Whitewater conference were lively and engaging as usual. Teachers and daycare providers learned a simple and useful technique to relax, refresh, and refocus with the peaceful pattern of the Tai Chi Animal Frolics form. The practice of this soothing pattern is perfect for children and adults and can be easily taught in schools and daycare centers. Hope to see many of you at next year’s conference.
