Sunday Morning Classes in Manhattan

Taiji Classes in the Park

Below is logistic information on the Center for Taiji & Qigong Studies' continuing public classes in Manhattan taught by Dr. Yang. Note: Class dates are subject to change due to Dr. Yang's busy travel schedule and ever increasing demands for his teaching.

Classes are structured in sessions of 10 classes - each class is 2 hours. Occasionally, when existing students travel, there will be an open space for drop-in students. You can check with the Center if you travel to NYC and would like to join a group lesson to learn from Dr. Yang.


The holistic taiji & qigong curriculum is designed to improve our wellbeing in mind, body, and spirit. Classes are non-sequential, so students are welcome to join anytime. Currenlty class is focuses on static and dynamic qigong meditation, the essential movements of the 48 form movement, and push-hands.


Note: Please submit the application using the link below if you are interested in attending this class.

Once you apply and are accepted, you will be invited to attend a single drop-in class when a drop-in spot comes available. This will allow you to evaluate whether you would like to continue as a full-time student, without committing to a full session.

Two steps are required to apply for class:

  • Submit an application form. We aim to respond to all applicants within three business days.
  • We will forward an invitation to a trial class as space allows. You will need to respond to that invitation and submit a waiver form at that time.

Please note that, in order to manage class size, all persons must register and pre-pay for the class - unannounced drop-in students are not accepted.
