Yang Form Etc Outdoors
New folks contact us to schedule intros. This open practice is for regular members that wish to work on Taiji warm ups, form, qigong and general physical conditioning. This is also a time for regular members to make up weekly classes they have missed. Come practice outdoors, weather permitting. I usually have a bandana on - if you don't find us, call/text me. Also, if weather is wet or severe, we cancel:[masked]. We try to be on the E side of the blacktop. Here's a google map of Robert Moses Playground, Grand Central subway closest: http://bit.ly/rm-playground . Dress comfortably in rubber or soft soled shoes if possible with low or no heels. Bring a towel or cloth to stay dry and liquid to hydrate, when cold dress to stay warm and dry. There are many benefits from learning Taiji form. One advantage of Man-ching's 37 Yang form is that it is relatively short and can be done in plus or minus 10 minutes. Once embodied (learned well and practiced regularly) it can assist you in maintaining optimum health. For more on health aspects of Tai Chi see here: NIH (http://j.mp/1e5HxJS). Please contact Inoshi for to arrange for an intro class and to learn about our program:[masked]. Please note: we do not offer regular classes for free. If you are a returning Saturday participant, contributions are expected.

What we're about

Meet and join us to practice friendly Taijiquan (Tai Chi Chuan). Take classes in moving Form, Push Hands, Qigong, Meditation and I-Ching (Book of Changes). Our primary studios are in midtown Manhattan.

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

Please call or message us to arrange an intro session and to learn about our programs: 646-801-9218. Note: our regular classes are not free. Not all classes are listed, to reduce Meetup email.

Classes are led by longtime practitioner and our principle instructor, Inoshi. On occasion other teachers may instruct 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.

Our foundation is Yang Family / Style Taiji, 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: Taiji oft appears rendered Tai Chi. Qigong as Chi Kung, and Push Hands is known as Tui Shou.
