Tai Chi & QiGong–Grassroots of Self Care

Ever feel like your health is not under your control? Ever think there has got to be a better way of staying healthy than boring and sometimes damaging exercise? Want to build a stronger immune system, improve balance and flexibility, reduce stress and create a stronger, more vibrant body by moving in a lovely, slow, dance-like way? Enter the ancient arts of Tai Chi and Qigong.   Learn how you may lower your BP 10 points in two minutes, increase your circulation and mental focus, prevent and improve many health conditions, and the list goes on and on. Come and let us share with you the wonderful and dynamic healing world of Tai Chi and Qi Gong.
Even if you are already on the Tai Chi Path—unless you are studying with a private instructor at a private studio—there are limits to what you will learn and what is allowed to be taught. At Trayfoot Mountain Studio we have no such limitations. Techniques and advanced theory shared in our classes will greatly enhance your Tai Chi and Qi Gong studies…no matter who you study with!

FREE Introductory Class!  Call for an appointment.

Trayfoot Studio Winter 2023 Schedule

All classes are small and outside on our new Tai Chi Pavilion so no worries about spreading germs! But do dress warm in layers.

We have classes outside year-round on our new Trayfoot Tai Chi Pavilion!


1:00 p.m.–Tai Chi & Qigong

This is a wonderful class for those who want to improve or maintain their health naturally while learning Qigong forms such as Eight Pieces of Brocade, Seasonal Qigong, Ruler Tai Chi/Qigong, Rainbow Fan Form and a short meditation. Class is on our new Tai Chi Pavilion overlooking the pond.

After we complete the movements we have a guided meditation and do some qigong self-massage. Because we use a Punch Card System* you do not lose sessions when you can’t attend. However, those who rarely miss class do usually reap more benefits!

Everyone from 18 to 100 is welcome in this class…no experience necessary!


1:00 p.m. –Tai Chi Forms

This is a mixed level class with beginners to the more experienced. We do a variety of easy and intermediate forms. We are starting a new form so this is the perfect time to join the class.

If you decide to join this class, I will meet with you privately a couple of times to get you started so you can blend into the group already working on the form.

Wednesdays NEW class

2:00 p.m. –Mindful Movement for Self-Healing & Better Balance

Many of us have reached the distinctive Senior title… and sometimes balance and health issues accompanies this title. A recent research study manned by doctors, physical therapists, tai chi masters and elder care specialists designed a program to create better balance in seniors and thus prevent dangerous falls. I have combined this with anti-cancer movements, movements to enhance flexibility, and movements that may help with neck, back and knee issues.
You will also learn to recognize your “tipping point” so you can stop a fall from happening.
Half of this 45 minute class will be done sitting, and believe it or not, the sitting movements are designed to strengthen your core, lower back/sacrum area, hips and abs! We finish up with a sitting meditation around the fire pit.


1:00 p.m. —Beginning Tai Chi & Qigong – First class is free!

This class is the perfect place to ease into the wonderful world of tai chi and qigong! You will learn stance training, healing breathing techniques, and two simple forms. By appointment only so please text or call ahead to secure your spot or set up appointment for your free class.
