Become aware of your own energy, while relaxing and strengthening your body without injury or strain. Tai Chi (Taiji) is an ancient form of meditative exercise, helping one meet day to day challenges by harmonizing mind and body and keeping oneself in tune with the natural order of things.
Join certified ACE Fitness Instructor Kristi Niedzwiecki for this unique experience as you harmonize Taiji with the beauty and tranquility of the Farnsworth House. Much as the design of the house incorporates its surroundings, the philosophy of Tai Chi includes the awareness of environment and encompassing energy. This special program will conclude in time for guests to join the 10 AM tour at a discounted price.
Designed by Mies van der Rohe in 1945 and constructed in 1951, the Farnsworth House is a vital part of American iconography, an exemplary representation of both the International Style of architecture as well as the modern movement’s desire to juxtapose the sleek, streamline design of Modern structure with the organic environment of the surrounding nature.
