Join senior teachers from the New York School of T’ai Chi Chuan for an introductory class on Randall’s Island! This will include a short demo followed by a class teaching some of the basic movements found in the Tai Chi form. This class will be easy to follow, enjoyable, and both energizing and relaxing! T’ai Chi Chuan is a system of movement practiced for health, vitality, stress reduction, and balance. Unlike exercise which relies on muscular force and tension, the graceful movements of T’ai Chi emphasize relaxation, straightness, and true balance.
Location: base of the 103rd Street Footbridge
