We’re baaaack… with a New Beginner Class!!

Tired of being cooped up in the house? Looking to get some of your flexibility and focus back? Would you like to begin to improve your balance and muscle strength? Do you enjoy learning in a fun and supportive environment? Well you’ve come to to right place! We are happy to announce that we are going to start a new six week beginner class!

In this beginner class you will learn:

  • the first 17 forms of the set
  • proper alignment and angles
  • body mechanics

Tai Chi is a low impact slow motion exercise that is done without pause and addresses some of the key components of fitness: muscle strength, flexibility and balance. You can start a Tai Chi practice no matter what your level of fitness or health because Tai Chi may be altered to fit the level of the student.

This class is great for someone who has never done Tai Chi before or someone who used to practice and would like a refresher class to help get back into the practice. Our studio is an open, bright and relaxing environment to learn in. We have friendly instructors and enthusiastic students who support people who are new to Tai Chi. All are welcome! You’ll find the specifics of the class below.

What: A new 6 week beginner class – Tuesday evenings

When: Starts on Tuesday, June 22 from 6 -7:30 pm (last class will be on Tuesday, July 27th).

Where: 2817 James Street – corner of James and North Edwards in Eastwood (Syracuse, NY). Look for the Moonlight Deli on James St. and turn onto North Edwards. We are on the North Edwards side of the building where there is a parking lot (free parking in this lot). Our sign is in the window of the studio.

Cost: $60 for the 6 week class. We accept cash or checks (sorry no credit cards). Payment accepted at the start of class.

What to wear: comfortable loose fitting clothing and comfortable flat shoes that enclose you whole foot (no flip flops).

We are looking forward to meeting you!!!

Things to know if you are planning to attend a class at the studio. Everyone attending a class in the studio will be required to wear a mask for the entire duration of the class for the time being. We will provide hand sanitizer and continue to ask that everyone wash their hands when entering the studio. We will keep the windows open for the entire duration of the class for added ventilation and will ask everyone to continue practicing social distancing for the time being. Many of the people in our club are older, immune compromised, or have other health issues that the practice of tai chi helps with. Let’s all continue to look out for each other at home, in our studio and in our community. We look forward to seeing all of our members and new people back in class!!

Tai Chi Revolution Classes Resuming in May!

Hello to everyone! We’ve made it through the terrible winter spike of COVID and are now looking at lower rates of infection and the opportunities that vaccination provides for people who are able to be vaccinated. We are really excited to finally be able to say that the studio will now be opening up again in May and, depending on weather conditions, some classes may also be held in the park as we move into the summer months.

The first class will be on Tuesday, May 4th from 6 – 7:30pm at the studio (see information below for indoor protocols). This weekly Tuesday night class will continue to be a beginner class with a focus on fundamentals and learning the basic movements of the set. We will start the month off with some review to get everyone back into thinking about form and focusing on our mindfulness in the moment.

Our other on-going classes will also be starting back up in May. Check back here for updates as we put our schedule together. You can also find us on Facebook; search for “Tai Chi Revolution” to find our page. Join our group to stay in the loop on new class offerings, what’s going on at the studio, and for some interesting reading about Tai Chi in general!

Classes Temporarily Suspended

Given the current coronavirus infection rates, we have temporarily suspended all of our Tai Chi classes. We are anxious to reopen as soon as it is safe for our members to be gathered in the studio. Please keep an eye out here or on our Facebook page (Tai Chi Revolution) for further information on reopening.

Please wear a mask, wash your hands, and continue to socially distance. We hope these simple measures will help to keep you and those around you safe during this frustrating and difficult time. We look forward to when we can all practice the calming benefits of Tai Chi together again.

Jump Start 2020 with a New Tai Chi Class!

Yikes!  It’s happening!  2019 is rapidly coming to a close and a new year is almost upon us.  For me, the start of a new year brings an opportunity to refocus on my own health and well-being and bringing balance back into my life.  That’s something that I often struggle with and Tai Chi has become an integral part of helping me maintain that mind – body balance.

Here at Tai Chi Revolution we’d like to invite you to join us for a new six week class (class details below).  This “beginner’s class” is designed to give students a foundation in Tai Chi movement principles, basic concepts and techniques, and the health benefits of regular practice. This class is for people who have no prior experience with Tai Chi or who have practiced Tai Chi but have been away from it and would like to get back into it.  This class is conducted in a safe, friendly, and supportive environment where everyone is welcome.

Our practice of Tai Chi is focused on the mind/body interaction and integrating slow, intentional movements to help strengthen, relax, coordinate and integrate the physical body and mind to improve overall health.  Regular practice of Tai chi can improve balance control, fitness, and flexibility, and may offer the benefits of reducing the risk of falls.  It is safe for people of all ages, as it does not put too much stress on the muscles and joints.   We hope to see you at our studio!
