Another Wednesday Morning Tai Chi

Wednesday July 4th and Wednesday July 11th I will be holding a Tai Chi class outside at Battery Park in Burlington at 9am (note that this is later than last week). We will meet in front of the Band shell.

The class is for all levels (even if you’ve never played any Tai Chi before) and is donation-based. No special clothing is required.

If you’ve been meaning to try Tai Chi for a while or if you’d just like a chance to practice with like-minded folks, you should come out. The form work we will do is gentle and flowing and will be easy on the body.

Wednesday Morning Tai Chi

This coming Wednesday, June 27th, I will be holding a Tai Chi class outside at Battery Park from 8:30am-9:30am. We will meet in front of the Band Shell.

The class is for all levels (even if you’ve never played any Tai Chi before) and is donation-based. No special clothing is required.

Please come join us if you can!

Monday Class Cancelled

Many apologies, but I must cancel our Monday evening class this week at the Chace Mill (February 20th).

I am (quite surprisingly) stuck in Richmond, Virginia, due to a large snowstorm shutting down the airport here. I will be returning tomorrow but I fear I will be too late for our class.

That said, we will extend the class one week to make up for the lost time. I understand that there’s no snow up in Vermont, but I hope you are all warm and comfortable nonetheless. I will let everyone know the details of the make-up class next week. Please feel free to email me with any questions you might have.

Sincerely,
Payton

Tai Chi Fundamentals Begins February 7th

On Tuesday, February 7th, I will begin my final Fundamentals course of the Winter. This will be at 7:30-8:30pm on Tuesday evenings at the North End Studios (see my class page for more information).

In April I will be traveling to China and hopefully will be able to bring back some interesting Qi knowledge to share in the summer. I will post about more classes at that time.

If you’d like to try out the Tai Chi material, now is a great time to do it. The depths of the slow, crawling Winter are past and the days are lengthening. The energy of the sun is becoming stronger and our own energies are beginning to stir, even though true Spring is still far off.

If you’d like to try a class without committing to the whole course, you are welcome to show up on either the first or second week. I’m also happy to work with your schedule to provide private instruction if desired.

May snow and sun nourish your days.

New Session Next Week

A new Tai Chi class will be starting next week! I think Tai Chi in 2012 is going to be even better than 2011, but I’ll let you be the judge of that. Come find out!

A new session begins January 10th at the North End Studio in Burlington or January 9th at the Chace Mill.

Both the Chace Mill class and the North End Studios class are the same material, so I invite people to choose which class fits their location and schedule the best. The Chace Mill class is at 6:45pm on Monday evenings and the North End Studios class is at 7:30pm on Tuesday evenings.

In the classes we’ll learn the Eight Foundation postures of Wu style Tai Chi and a great many principles that underlie both Tai Chi and Qigong. I like to put a lot of emphasis on how Tai Chi can be useful in daily life and focus less on choreography.

No experience or special clothes required. If you’d like any more details, just let me know or check out my classes page.

New class at the Chace Mill

Starting on January 9th, I’ll now be offering a second Beginners class at the Chace Mill building in addition to my class at the North End Studios.

Two classes? Which one do you take? Well, just like in Tai Chi itself, find the path that’s most comfortable for you. The class at the North End Studios is near downtown Burlington and is on Tuesday evenings from 7:30pm-9pm. The Chace Mill class is closer to Winooski and is on Monday evenings from 6:45pm-8pm. Perhaps one of these times or locations is better suited to you.

For more details about the classes, see my classes page and please sign up by sending me an email or giving me a call.
