Free Morning Qi-Gong Class - Tai Chi
Start the day off with a free Qi-Gong class at the ECAC from 9 to 10:30am. I am not a morning person but I really enjoy taking classes with Manifest Ra (he usually teaches in the park in the warm weather). If you can make it, it's good stuff! The ECAC is located at 733 Euclid St, NW, near Banneker High and Howard University. Metro is not that close, you can take a bus along Georgia Ave from U St metro or bike, taxi or walk about 10 blocks or so from Columbia Heights.
