The Saskatoon location, established in 2001, had its beginnings with a participant who had just returned from Taoist Tai Chi™ classes in Vancouver and was keen to get a center going here. With the
support of an intrepid band of instructors from Regina, who took turns
commuting every weekend in fair weather and foul, a small but dedicated
group of participants began classes in the Saskatoon Field House. Our numbers began to grow, but it was apparent that further development would be hampered by an insufficient number of instructors and increasing difficulty in finding and booking multiple rented locations for classes. As we learned more about Fung Loy Kok Taoist Tai Chi™ and some of our participants began instructor training, we developed a business plan and started scouting for a more permanent location. Our goal was to have a new home by the fall of 2003.
By the end of August, 2003, we had found an excellent location in City
Park. With the landlord's blessing to renovate, we opted for a
high ceiling, tile floor, wheelchair-accessible washroom, and the warm,
inviting colours we applied ourselves during a painting bee. With the
addition of some plants, posters and photos, an impressive bulletin board, and the piece de resistance, a big red dragon mobile, we were soon
ready to move in. We have since acquired a kitchen, mirrors and bars,
and some very fetching additional wall decor.
We offered our first classes in the new space in October 2003 and we held our
Grand Opening in tandem with a regional workshop February 6–8, 2004.
