Welcome to the
Tai Chi is a Chinese system of slow and graceful movement that improves health and wellbeing. Studies show that practicing Tai Chi reduces stress and anxiety, improves balance, sharpens the connection between mind and body, and alleviates or prevents a number of medical conditions.
At the Westchester Tai Chi Center, we have developed a variety of in-person and online classes that will help you to meet your personal goals, whatever your age and fitness level. The Center was founded at the Burke Rehabilitation Hospital in White Plains, New York, and now holds its in-person classes in a brand new facility at St. Gregory's Church in White Plains.
We believe that Tai Chi is for everyone, which is why we offer a free trial class, written support materials, and unlimited access to training videos that will help you to practice at home.
Join us, and learn to move more mindfully.
The Westchester Tai Chi Center offers a variety of classes at various levels. Contact us today for a free trial class.
TRADITIONAL TAI CHI
In our traditional Tai Chi classes, students learn the Yang Style form, the most widely-practiced style of Tai Chi in the United States. Classes also include Qigong, meditation and visualization, and diaphragmatic breathing exercises. Most classes include students with various levels of experience, although we sometimes reserve a class for beginners only. All movements are done standing.
These classes cover a variety of topics on a rotating basis, delving deep into the internal arts through meditation, Qigong, Dao Yin, Tai Chi stick, and Tai Chi saber. No prior experience is necessary for most classes, although permission of the instructor is required. See our schedule of classes for current offerings and click here to learn more about our Meditation and Qigong class.
Individual instruction is available in person or via Zoom for currently enrolled students who would like to supplement their in-class learning with more individualized corrections. Sessions can be scheduled in one-hour or half-hour blocks. E-mail Lisa@WestchesterTaiChiCenter.com or call 914-815-1922 to schedule a time.
