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 classes that will help you to meet your personal goals, whatever your age and fitness level. All in-person classes are held on the beautiful campus of the Burke Rehabilitation Hospital in White Plains, New York.
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 contain students with various levels of experience, although we reserve some classes 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.

TAI CHI FOR BALANCE
Our balance classes draw on the fundamental principles of Tai Chi to address balance concerns. Several levels are available. Each class includes traditional Tai Chi movements as well as others that have been adapted to become more balance specific. All balance classes require that participants can stand and walk unassisted.
THERAPEUTIC TAI CHI
Our therapeutic classes are appropriate for special populations, such as those with Parkinson's, neurological challenges, mobility concerns, acute balance issues, assisted walking devices, and those recovering from stroke. All movements are done seated. Students must be able to attend class without the support of an aid or caregiver.
