The vibrant neighborhood of Tenleytown, DC is home to the highest point in the city, a Civil War fort, some of the District’s oldest streets and homes, the northernmost hiking trail entrance to Glover Archibald Park, Wilson High School and pool, American University’s Tenley campus, the Tenley-Friendship neighborhood library, and more. Come for a visit!
Our classroom is at The Center:

T’ai Chi (also known as T’ai Chi Ch’uan, Taiji and Taijiquan) is a wise and wonderful movement system. If you’re curious about trying T’ai Chi, let me know if you’d like to come in for a free sample class.

The Soft Answer: Verbal T’ai Chi
inspired by Suzette Haden Elgin’s books on The Gentle Art of Verbal Self Defense
March 24, 2015


During our recent Holiday Giving Initiative, the following organizations received donations from the students of Tenleytown T’ai Chi:
The McClendon Center, Bread for the City, Friendship Place’s Winter Warm Day sock drive, The Environmental Working Group, Food and Friends, Martha’s Table, SOME (So Others Might Eat), the USO, the United Nations’ World Food Programme, The Washington Animal Rescue League, The Wounded Warrior Project and Wikipedia’s Wikimedia Foundation
On Veteran’s Day, thinking of my gratitude for the service our Veterans have given, I began thinking of all the things I have to be grateful for. This made me think about Thanksgiving, and the greater “holiday season.” So many do for us that we can never pay back; but we can honor their gifts through giving. During the 2014-2015 holiday season (expanded to run from Veteran’s Day through MLK Day), each registered student had the option of taking two classes at no charge, and donating the corresponding amount to the charity of their choice.

Tenleytown T’ai Chi is convenient to Chevy Chase, Friendship Heights, Van Ness, Palisades and Spring Valley, and we are right up Wisconsin Ave from Cathedral Heights, Glover Park, Burleith and Georgetown. On the WMATA Metro Red line, we are only a few stops from Cleveland Park, Woodley Park, DuPont Circle, Farragut North, Metro Center, Chinatown / Gallery Place, Judiciary Square, Union Station and the NoMa - Gallaudet, Brookland / Catholic University Fort Totten, and Takoma Park stops. If you are coming in from the orange or blue lines, such as from Rosslyn or George Washington University / GWU / Foggy Bottom, WMATA allows above ground transfers between Farragut West and Farragut North Metro stops.
