Tai Chi in Bryant Park

In 2004 we introduced the first free public classes in Bryant Park.

Every year since then we’ve continued working with park staff to roll out an annual celebration of World Tai Chi Day on the last Saturday of every April, and a very popular program of free morning classes from May through September that have reached tens of thousands of people.

Our Bryant Park example has inspired others to offer everything from bocce instruction and yoga to fly-fishing and knitting.

This past year was our 18th season of community outreach. Our reach continues to grow and this year Bryant Park attendance records for Eternal Spring classes given Tuesday and Thursday mornings from May through August hit an all-time high. We continue in our mission to provide benefits of Tai Chi to those who don’t normally have access to Tai Chi practice and training.

World Tai Chi & Chi Kung Day 2022

World Tai Chi & Chi Kung Day 2022 was held at Bryant Park on April 30th

World Tai Chi & Chi Kung Day (worldtaichiday.org) celebrates the unique system of health and self-defense that originated in China nearly a thousand years ago and is observed annually on the last Saturday in April in more than 80 countries around the world, including in Bryant Park since 2004.

The Tai Chi Chuan Center was founded as a non-profit organization in 2000 by Master C.K. Chu and his students to help bring the benefits of Tai Chi to a wider audience.  Your contributions support our mission and strengthen the community.
