At the break of dawn on Tuesday 2 May, BridgeClimb Sydney and Australian Academy of Tai Chi and Qigong, came together to host the world first Tai Chi class at the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

134 metres above the waking city, Grand Master Gary Khor and Master Aaron Khor, who run Tai Chi schools across Australia, led a group of 14 Climbers, comprised of Tai Chi instructors and students, and health and fitness social media influencers through several serene Tai Chi sequences.

After ascending the famous arches, Tai Chi fans were securely attached to the participants for the ancient martial arts sequences, each marked with the Yin Yang symbol representing two forces coming together, often found in Tai Chi practice.

BridgeClimb hosted the event on the famous coat-hanger, itself a symbol of bringing people together, to celebrate multiculturalism through the Chinese Martial Art that serves as an important form of cultural exchange between nations.

Grand Master Gary Khor and Master Aaron Khor came on board to share their experience and passion of health through the ancient slow moving martial art.

Grandmaster Khor said, “Tai Chi is a mind-body healing art which refreshes and energise your whole being. Tai Chi is a mindful moving meditation which relaxes your body, focus your mind, and lift your spirit. Just like this uplifting feeling on top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge on this beautiful morning.

“Tai Chi brings together people of all ages and all cultures to cultivate good health, fitness, relaxation and the ability to move through life skilfully. The tranquillity found at summit of the Sydney Harbour Bridge at dawn, provided a perfect and beautiful setting for our sequences”.

Loren Wattling who participates in the event said, “It was such a beautiful morning on the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Very exciting to climb to the top and take in breathtaking views of the city and then so incredibly peaceful to be taken through some Tai Chi moves at the top”.

BridgeClimb was thrilled to host this multicultural health and fitness event, a further demonstration of their ongoing commitment to develop special events catering to all manner of interests, Sydney’s festivals and international markets.

In the last few years, BridgeClimb has hosted special limited edition Climbs and one-off special events for local and international festivals and celebrations including, World Yoga Day, Diwali the Hindu Festival of Light, Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day and Vivid Sydney’s The Vivid Climb.
