World Tai Chi Day Kicks off Bryant Park’s 2018 Tai Chi Season - Bryant Park
April 28, 2018 - New York
Bryant Park, New York’s town square, will kick off its annual Tai Chi program on Saturday, April 28 with “World Tai Chi Day.” Free instruction will be provided to newcomers. Hundreds of cities in more than 80 nations participate in World Tai Chi Day, which seeks to inform people of the health and healing benefits of the ancient Chinese ritual. Tai Chi is a way of moving. Its graceful, slow-moving pace works with one’s “qi” or life force. Originally developed 500 years as a martial art, modern practitioners focus more on its healing aspects. Bryant Park’s Tai Chi classes, provided by the Tai Chi Chuan Center and led by teachers and students who train at CK Chu Tai Chi under the direction of Master Hyland Harris, take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning on May 1 and ending on August 30, from 7:30 to 8:30 AM on the Fountain Terrace, off Sixth Ave. and 41st St. All classes and free and registration is not required. For more information on Tai Chi and hundreds of other free public events and programs, please visit the Bryant Park website or call 212-768-4242.
