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.
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

Trayfoot Studio Late Spring–Summer 2022 Schedule
All classes are small and outside so no worries about spreading germs!
10:00 p.m.–Still Water Qigong* and Meditation
This is a wonderful class for those who want to improve or maintain their health naturally and I created this form especially for those reasons! And no it is not done in the water but it is done looking over Trayfoot 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 rarely miss class do usually reap more benefits!
Everyone from 18 to 100 is welcome in this class…no experience necessary!
10:00 a.m. –Tai Chi Forms, Fan Tai Chi & Moving Tree Qigong
This is a mixed level class with beginners to the more experienced. We do a variety of easy and intermediate forms. We are currently working on the lovely Rainbow Fan Form–but don’t let the name fool you–it also has self-defense applications!
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.
Moving Tree Qigong is a sitting form that I created on New Year’s Day to enhance our connection to nature, energetically cleanse and strengthen our bodies and nourish our souls. It is easy, relaxing and wonderful…especially after a tai chi session!
10:00 a.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. Please text or call ahead to secure your spot or set up appointment for your free class.
