This is a wonderful opportunity to really get to know your mind and body. Anyone can do this practice- and at any age. I have trained in Eastern Indian Yoga and found this practice is unique in the way that it gave me a tremendous amount of tools, unlike any practice. I am so happy to have discovered it and encourage anyone who is interested in a gentle and effective way to connect with your body for your own personal self-healing; then, try this. This practice is special because it works the meridian channels of the body, key acupressure points while also teaching you to accumulate and circulate your bodies own energy - Qi or Chi (Ch'i). It's very powerful. My body has the same response as it did when I was doing way more strenous traditional yoga. So, this is a great discipline alone and for some a powerful compliment with other forms of exercise!!! Check it out!

I used to have arthritis and a frozen left shoulder, plus very painful calcium deposits that required cortisone shots from my MD. However, after taking Tao Yoga classes and having healing sessions at the Tao Center all my symptoms are

Be aware, this is Dahn Yoga, which you should google if you don't know what it is. This is not a regular t'ai chi or yoga center. It's some kind of religion or organization, but also a business.

Look at the reviews. They're all either 5

I love that I can do both Yoga and Tai Chi all at the same place. If I had to pay an additional fee for Tai Chi I wouldn't be able to get the benefits as I do... Plus, this is really a yoga about moving the energy!!!\r

So, check it out.

I tried other places and no one was as convenient as the Tao yoga studio. I love the peaceful environment of the center. Since I'm practicing this yoga I feel more relax and at the same time more focus and energized. I'm learning how to

It is amazing experience for me.?? I have been practicing Tao yoga for several years. My first experience of Tao yoga was amazing. Physicall I felt fine but I always felt empty and was looking for something to fullfill my heart. Stretch was really good. Some posture was easy to follow. Some posture was challenging. It was first time to feel my body like that clearly. Breathing time I could be more aware of my body and mind. In and out. in... and out... By breathing I could stay in the present. My mind became quiet and my body become so relaxed. I realize this is how to heal my body and mind. Last part wa energy meditation. I felt some magnetic sensation on my palms. By feeling energy the sense of meditation was getting deeper and deeper... After my first, Tao yoga became one of the most important part of my life... I recommend Tao yoga to everybody!??

This is an amazing place- you can do Tai Chi/ Ki Gong and Yoga all under ONE ROOF- and no extra fees. How cool is that! I love the ENERGY elements in all the classes, especially the combination with YOGA. For me, it was a dream come true,

I've been attending classes at Tao Yoga almost daily for about 3 months. I find the staff very friendly and supportive. I am 67 years old and need a type of yoga that is gentle but effective in exercising every part of the body

I've been attending classes at Tao Yoga almost daily for about 3 months. I find the staff very friendly and supportive. I am 67 years old and need a type of yoga that is gentle but effective in exercising every part of the body without the acrobatics and stretch and strain of many other yogas.
The entire floor is cushioned which means I don't need to carry a yoga mat around with me. Uniforms are required but I can leave them at the center so I don't have to carry around yoga pants, etc. If I come from work I can take a shower before class if needed. Music and rhythm play a great part in the work. Besides Yoga, I practice Tai-Chi and Chi-Gong and Vibration classes and each instructor has his / her own style of teaching which makes for a wide variety of techniques.
The classes are serious but also light and a lot of fun.
In the 3 months that I have taken classes I have yet to see a negative reaction from the instructors or the students themselves, who seem to regard each other as friends. When I leave the center and go out into the world I am able to take the positive feelings I receive at the center and share them with almost everyone I meet.

This little oasis is really a hidden treasure of calmness, peace, and ENERGY located smack dap in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Union Square. A place where one can really work to understanding the full potential of your mind and body. I found this place by accident and I have to say it was by far the best "mistake" I've ever made! haaa. Having been a beginner to the Art, the flexibility of the staff to join as either a member or per-class package was a really great way for me to get my feet wet and explore if this was actually something for me. For the same membership or package I am able to take either one of the Tai Chi classes or any of the yoga classes on the schedule. I'm not limited to only Tai Chi. That was a BIG bonus for me and huge seller. Also, the classes are a really great and intimate size. So, I always felt like I was getting a lot of attention. My next step in taking the more advanced form called Dahn Mu Do which is a healing Martial Arts that focuses on internal strengthening. It's truly beautiful to watch it performed. Hope you take the time to check out the center. I'm telling everyone!

Pros: Place is soothing and the staff is extremely nice

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

The staff is spiritual and always welcoming. The classes not only focus on stretching,and strenghtening, but also focus on improving organs and brain functioning. Other benefits are learning to stay in the present, feeling more relaxed and having more energy.

Taoist Yoga is different from Indian/Hatha yoga. It combines elements of Tai Chi, breathing and energy meditation. The exercise and instructors at Tao Yoga are so wonderful and the space itself is an oasis. Unlike most Hatha Yoga centers, Tao Yoga teaches mind-body training that is not focused on learning a form, but on mastering yourself. If you're looking for more than a few Asanas, and want a powerful form of moving meditation that literally transforms your day...and body, I recommend it!

This is a really special place for practicing healing, enlightenment and empowerment. All the staff are true practitioners, and the training has brought through and amazing process of physical strengthening, mental and emotional clarity and confidence, and am currently working on developing a spiritual sense and insight that I bring with me through my life. Thank you Master Michael and Master Kim!

This place is wonderful. I came without any expectations, just wanting to feel healthier in body and mind, and that's exactly what I got. I got rid of my lower back pain and have a lot more clarity and focus in my life. They teach a style of yoga in the Taoist tradition called Dahn Yoga. While it differs in form from Indian styles, it's deeply effective in releasing stress, and discovering inner power and energy. I'd strongly recommend it to anyone wanting to feel more open, connected, and healthy.
