Welcome to Falun Dafa in New York

Falun Dafa (Falun Gong) is an ancient Chinese practice to enhance body, mind and spirit. It has superb health benefits, relieves stress and anxiety, and promotes both mental and spiritual well-being. Thousands of people, from all walks of life have come to learn this wonderful practice in the Greater New York Metro area. You can too!

You can learn the 5 exercises of Falun Dafa at any of the following practice locations. There are no prerequisites and beginners are always welcome. At each site, there will be somebody who will teach newcomers the complete set of exercises, you simply need to let them know that you would like to learn. Don't be shy, if you get there late, and they have already started, just walk up to the group and join in. For outdoor sites, it's a good idea to bring something to sit on in case the grass is wet, usually a towel and a trash bag is good enough. Most practice sites will meet all year-round, even in rain or cold weather, however, it's best to verify by calling the contact person beforehand.
