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.

Stand like a mountain; move like a great river. ~T’ai Chi Classics
