Long Island Center for Yoga

T’ai Chi

Tai Chi (also Taiji, or Taijiquan), is an “internal” Chinese martial art that over the last century has become known for its ability to improve the health and well being of regular practitioners. Tai Chi can be viewed to create a great balance between strength and grace, beauty and power, ebb and flow. At The Yoga Center, the primary form taught is the Classical Northern Wu Taijiquan long form. Northern Wu style taijiquan is characterized by a medium frame and forward oriented stances. It emphasizes large “internal” movements over large frame external movements in order to generate power.
