Brookline Tai Chi is one of the oldest schools of Tai Chi and Qigong in New England, for 24 years offering a wide range of courses and trainings that enliven and empower students of all ages and levels of ability.
We teach ancient arts, both in their traditional forms and in more modern incarnations that utilize cutting-edge sports and medical science, and are
accessible to people with diverse interests and capacities. As of Winter 2017, we offer 20 different weekly classes, and an average of 3-4 special workshops every month. Our 3 most senior instructors have over 100 years of teaching experience between them!
We are a positive, welcoming, life-affirming community; a place for people to improve themselves and their lives, at their own pace.
