Tai Chi to Return

Start your morning with a calming session of Tai Chi with masters from Tai Chi Chuan Center.

As warmer weather beckons, fans of Bryant Park’s free Tai Chi classes will be glad to know that the popular program will be back soon. We’ve set the dates, so get out your calendar.  

Tai Chi kicks off at Bryant Park when we once again host World Tai Chi Day, 11:00am-2:00pm on Saturday, April 26. The Bryant Park Tai Chi series of free classes conducted by masters from Tai Chi Chuan Center returns to the park’s Fountain Terrace on April 29 for twice-weekly sessions, 7:30-8:30am on Tuesdays and Thursdays, through September.

This is the 11th season of Bryant Park Tai Chi and, sadly, it will be the first during which the classes will not be directed by Master Chu of the Tai Chi Chuan Center, who passed away last fall. Master Chu was a dedicated and calming presence at Bryant Park Tai Chi since the program’s beginning and will be sorely missed, but no doubt participants will be in good hands as we move to a new era. Remember, classes are free and open to people of all skill levels. Just remember to wear shoes and clothes you can move in. Meanwhile, stay current on the series by visiting the Free Tai Chi in Bryant Park Facebook page.
