Roots and Branches Qigong™
for Relaxation and Grounding
We highly recommend these live-stream and in-person classes for brand new students as well as experienced practitioners. For now, we are offering these Qigong classes for FREE.
Click HERE to register for a Sunday live-stream via zoom Qigong class.
Our QiGong, Roots and Branches 5 Element QiGong™, is based on the Cheng Man Ch’ing Style T’ai Chi form – also known as Yang Style short form – and is unique in the world of Qigong.
Highly recommended for all students, these classes are taught as hybrid classes (both in-person and live-stream), by senior T’ai Chi Foundation teacher, Greg Woodson, Sundays at 12 pm EST.
To register for in-person classes, please click on this contact link to send us an email with your request. You may also reach us by phone at 212-502-4112. In-person classes are free for first-time students. After trying a class, you are welcome to continue, for $20 per class, available as drop-in classes. All in-person, in-door classes require proof of vaccination. Live stream classes are still being offered for free (donations accepted).
Testimonial: “This is just to thank you and Greg for such an enlightening and enjoyable class. Every Sunday I appreciate more how Greg simplifies (instead of complicating) basic tai chi principles and helps us to understand, enact and practice them. Through his class, I am learning for the first time how to actually relax and feel what’s happening, things I’ve been told to do from my first class, but have only begun to experience through Greg’s classes. Basic tai chi principles remain the same, but every week Greg puts them in a different light, revealing another facet of the diamond that is tai chi. Thanks again.” – Bill

The New York School of T’ai Chi Chuan is making private instruction or consultations with senior teachers available via Zoom or, when possible, outdoor social distance meetings. We recognize that some students may wish to have a chance to get more personalized instruction that is only available one-on-one.
NYSTCC has set a price of $80 for a 45-minute live-stream Zoom session with one of our senior teachers. The base fee for in-person sessions normally starts at $100 per hour and may vary depending on the instructor. If you would like to set up a session or discuss how this might work for you, please call us at 212-502-4112 or use our contact link to let us know how to reach you, and that you would like to set up a session with one of our senior teachers.

Covid-19 Safety Protocols
As we prepare to resume in-person classes in September 2021, the Board of the New York School of Tai Chi Chuan (NYSTCC) has determined a set of protocols to protect the health and wellbeing of our teachers and students. These protocols will change according to Federal, State, New York City, and CDC recommendations and mandates.
• All in-person students must present proof of Covid vaccination. Anyone not vaccinated will be invited to join our online classes. (NYSTCC in-person teachers will also be vaccinated.)
• Social distancing will be observed where reasonable and practicable. Classes may be capped, depending on the size of the room in which your class is held.
• Mask wearing is not mandated schoolwide. Individual teachers may require masks in classes. We are aware of the spreading Delta variant and will comply with CDC/Federal/State/City mask mandates as they are put into effect. We will also abide by any masking requirements of the venues for our classes.
• Hand sanitizers will be available in every class.
These protocols go into effect immediately, September 2021. While students participate knowing that we cannot guarantee protection against disease, we will continue our efforts for safety in our classes.
