Tai Chi classes in Taipei (in english?)

Discussions about how to find those things that are not immediately obvious

Moderator: Charlie Phillips

Forum rules
1) Please search :pray: before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one. :pray:

3) Please post separately :pray: for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!! :rainbow:

I did Yang style for four months. I know hot springs are also relaxing, specially if you combine them with sauna, but the point was that Tai Chi is a relaxing exercise. Dipping yourself in hot water can hardly be considered an exercise.

I was just thinking out loud. Sorry if my post did not meet your expectations for this thread. Hot water is not exercise, but going for a run/walk/doing pushups and then going to hot springs is a good full spectrum workout/relaxation session. If you are not into it, OK... but there are other people reading this board that might be new to Taiwan. Maybe they didn't know about Xinbeitou.

Dude, I didn't mean to sound angry, I was merely stating that I was looking for Tai-chi classes and you mention hot springs. You have to admit that it was a little bit off-topic.

And yes, Xinbeitou or Wulai are good places around Taipei for hot springs, but there are no Tai chi classes there that I know of.
