Update: The park is currently open to the public between Gansevoort and West 30th Streets. Crews are working to remove ice on the remaining paths so that we can open the remainder of the park as soon as possible. Please check back or follow @highlinenyc on Twitter for updates.
Every Tuesday, June through September, 9:30 to 10:30 AM
Under the Standard, on the High Line at West 12th Street
Don't miss this amazing opportunity to discover a new discipline and find balance and relaxation in our beautiful park! Join our neighbors from the Taoist Tai Chi Society for an introductory practice of the different moves included in the basic Tai Chi set. Tai Chi is learned by doing: the instructor will demonstrate, then perform the moves with the class, and finally watch the students as they repeat them. Movements are believed to help calm the emotions, focus the mind, and strengthen the immune system.
People of all ages and conditions can learn.
In the event of rain, Tai Chi will be moved into the 14th Street passage, on the High Line at 14th Street.
ABOUT TAOIST TAI CHI SOCIETY
The Taoist Tai Chi Society is the largest non-profit Tai Chi organization in the world, practicing in 26 countries. Taoist Tai Chi is an exercise for health and relaxation, and can be practiced by people of any age or fitness level. Developed by the Taoist Society's founder, Master Moy Lin Shin, a 108 move "set" is specifically designed to improve health. Stretching, full range of motion, and the continuous turning of the spine distinguish this art at the physical level. Join us and learn the first few moves.
In partnership with Taoist Tai Chi Society.
Public Programs on the High Line are supported by Altman Foundation. These programs are supported, in part, with public funds from the New York City Council, under the leadership of Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito.
