9.20.19 I'm Ready Conference

Intro to Tai Chi 10:45-11:30am in the Movement Room. 

Virada was born and raised in San Francisco. She received her cultural “education” at the Berkeley Thai Temple, where she immersed in Thai dance, ritual, and community since childhood. As an adult, she found that her years steeped in “motherland ways” were preparing her to receive a different traditional art, Chen Taijiquan (Tai Chi), and has been practicing for over seven years. She hopes to share this humble yet powerful martial art with women and creatives to re-imagine the journey of healing and vitality. She believes that the Chinese internal martial art of Tai Chi will help participants tap into the wisdom of our bodies and draw from Yin Yang philosophy, rather than the Western approach of intellect and analysis.
