Chinese New Year 2016
Year of the Monkey

For 2016, the Lunar New Year begins on Monday, February 8 and the celebration traditionally lasts for two weeks. The Jing Ying Institute of Kung Fu & tai Chi will be hosting our annual celebration to help usher in the Year of the Monkey, but because we have so many wonderful activities, we've decided to offer them over the course of the month.

These events are open to the general public and do not require any previous experience. We recommend that you register in advance for any workshops you would like to attend. You may register at the door, but it will be on a "space-available" basis. We recommend that you arrive 10 to 15  minutes early to any events to check in or register as needed.

Tea Tasting from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. This informative workshop is presented by Lynayn Mielke of The East West Tea Emporium in Annapolis, a tea professional with Level IV Certification from the Specialty Tea Institute. You’ll get to try several teas from China, learn about their proper preparation, and learn about their health benefits. This class is almost full and and since we are so close to the event, no refunds can now been given. If there is room, we will allow at-the-door registrations; but there is no guarantee that room will be available.  Use the link below to register on-line. For more information or to register by phone, call the Jing Ying Institute at 410-431-5200.

Lynayn is a fun and engaging speaker, and you will walk away from the event knowing more about tea than you ever thought possible! Because of our relationship with Lynayn, we are fortunate to be able to offer this workshop as such a low cost. We hope you can join us for this always enjoyable and fun event. Class size is limited, so be sure to register soon.

Inclement weather policy.

Improve your chi with tea!
