Welcome to the Meetup portal for NYC based Open Tai Chi. We invite you to meet and practice friendly Tai Chi Chuan. We offer quality courses in Yang Form, Qigong, Push Hands (Tui Shou), Meditation and I-Ching (Book of Changes). We also have periodic workshops and related programs as may be calendared.

We strive to cultivate a friendly and fun atmosphere, and a few events are conducted in an informal setting. All are welcome, from absolute beginners to any mind-body / martial arts people.

Classes are taught by our longtime practitioner and principle instructor, Inoshi. On occasion other experienced practitioners may assist beginners in these arts as well. Dress comfortably in clothes which you can move freely in. Street clothes are fine (changing areas available). Please see specific class descriptions for more detail, especially on footwear.

Please call us to arrange a intro class and to learn about our programs: 646-801-9218. Note: our classes are not free.

Our foundation is Yang Family / Style Tai Chi, yet includes practice from other families. We meet weekly with the exception of a possible Summer break, a Winter break and few major holidays.  Note: Tai Chi oft appears rendered Taiji.

Open Tai Chi is a branch of Unu Wellness Network. For wider interests see Unu's portal too: http://www.meetup.com/unu-wellness/
