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!
FYI: All my classes are small so we can focus on individual health, healing and improvement. Everyone welcome! For more information call 540-476-1789

This is a wonderful class for those who want to improve or maintain their health naturally with the seasons. As the seasons flow gently we do to, adding movements specific to the current season to basic 5 element movements. This helps our body adapt to the changes of each season and avoid seasonal ailments like colds and flu. For example, because fall puts extra stress on the lungs, we do movements specific to strengthening and healing our respiratory system. In the spring, we work on supporting the liver, etc.
After we complete the movements we have a guided meditation and do some qigong self-massage. While you do not have to attend every Monday, those who do usually reap more benefits. Everyone from 18 to 100 is welcome in this class…no experience necessary!
